Interning At 'The Atlantic?'

Jeffrey Goldberg writes the "What's Your Problem?" advice column for The Atlantic. He recently received an inquiry from Maya in Chapel Hill, who wants to write for the magazine someday. To give her a sense of what the job entails, he gives her a rundown of the current interns' schedule. It includes:

4:00 a.m.: Wake up

4:15 a.m.: Cardio-boxing with David Bradley, chairman, Atlantic Media Company

5:00 a.m.: Animal husbandry

5:15 a.m.: Chapel

5:45 a.m.: Time to make the doughnuts

And so on — somehow this busy crew of interns also manages to cull competing publications from newsstands, and prepare the bedding for senior staff's naptime. Good times. Seriously, what's the weirdest thing you ever had to do for an internship?
