How has work been? Stressful lately?

How did I do? Do I win a cookie?
You might be on to something. I am a Quality Director (Final word on all things quality) for a company that manufactures airframe parts for commercial and military aircraft. The potential repercussions of a mistake on my part may be haunting me. I've been doing this job for 30+ years, and have been having these dreams for 20+. Not afraid of flying at all, I love it!

Are you sure you're not a shrink?
