100 words, M, mid-00s

M was a production VP at a major book publishing house who had only gotten to that position by virtue of being in the right place at the right time. He knew little about publishing anything beyond mass market, and would constantly ask questions like "Why do we need to design that?" He was a schlub in a old sweater who couldn't even be bothered to stand up straight. He also had a photo of himself outside his door of himself, stoned, sometime in the 1970s. The only time he ever spoke to me was about food. He liked food.
