Fire In The Whatnow

“Fire in the belly, that’s what you need,” shouted a red-faced man. “You won’t get anything from a sale if you don’t have fire in the belly!” He seemed pretty convinced by it. The rest of the national sales conference seemed to agree. The throng of identically suited men in attendance all raised themselves up and applauded. I sat still; remaining convinced they were applauding his ability to complete a rant without suffering from a heart attack. It struck me that adding a loud noise into the equation might be just the tipping point his corpulent (and unsettlingly moist) body didn’t need.
