The boardroom filled up as young Riechek plugged his laptop into the projector.

"Now this line here," Riechek pointed to a chart that rose steeply as it moved from left to right, "represent our profits. You can see they are going up"

The board members broke into applause.

Riechek clicked a button and a new chart cam up on the screen, showing line that fell from left to right.

"This represents our sense of self." Riecheck swallowed hard, expecting the board members to jeer.

But they had no reaction. They just sat back and in unison reflected on that time at camp, when they were twelve, when they'd wet their pants.

02/19/2004 scoop (3): I think it would've been much better if it had ended with "no reaction" line. I dig the abstract quality of this one.
