Should Employers Be Worried About Game of Thrones Hangover This Season?

Imagine a version of this happening every weekend: adults structuring their Sundays around one of the most anticipated and most watched shows of our generation.

We've Lost the Trail

Ishibashi Trail, Palos Verdes

And that they won't need to come for me

anymore

The bend (in me) has gone gray and green

and back again
