Really it’s more of a lunch date because frankly, I’m typing this out on my lunch break. I’ve spent the last three days at work pouring over an Excel sheet and oh gosh, my eyes! my brain! and yes, a little bit of my soul are shot right now. Coupled with the complication from the state taxation department (nothing’s wrong, I just want to do things right and man they make it difficult) I’m in major need of a little relaxation tonight.
You’ve had a few days of super focus and frustration getting a project done. You’re done. It’s Friday lunchtime and you haven’t had coffee yet, but you’re making Mudslide flavored coffee because it’s Friday damn it. You find an airplane sized bottle of Baileys in your desk drawer.
a) smile because you’ve gotten your work done but you’re at work so no booze?
b) put the damn Baileys in your Mudslide flavored coffee because you’ve earned it damn it?
Factors for consideration: You’re at work. There’s a very good possibility you won’t see anyone for the rest of the day because it’s Friday. You’re already drinking Mudslide flavored coffee…
I can’t bring myself to do it. I just can’t.
What I am going to do though is get some food, finish my coffee and hopefully the rest of the day just flies by and I can have wine or an Angry Orchard when I get home tonight.
Don’t forget to go say hello to Alissa and the other Coffee Daters!
