I’m opening the phone lines for suggestions, but I’ll start off with a sample from one of rock’s most literate songwriters, and a perennial candidate for any list of great underrated musicians. This one always comes in handy for any unhappy relationship or untenable work situation:

and it works this way:

notice I’ve been gone

for fourteen days.

Nick Lowe, “Fourteen Days,” from The Impossible Bird
