[dropcap background=”yes” color=”#333333″]W[/dropcap]e get the Wall Street Journal at work everyday. Normally my schedule is wake up at 7:30, be at work by 8, check my email and eat my breakfast while reading the journal. However, lately we’ve had so much activity that reading the Journal is an afterthought. This disturbs me.
Yesterday I got home as 5:15 and wanted to go for a run. Instead I sat on my bed, watched the end of 12 Monkeys, and fell asleep for an hour before bowling. This is what happens when you are running 580pcs of 100-A’s through your shop and business is flying off the handle. (I know everyone is equally interested in bowling so just know that we went 2-2 and Sam rolled a 200 to save us in game 1. As I always have to toot my own horn, I actually saved the game rolling a turkey in the 10th against arguably the best bowler in the league who got so intimidated by my ability that he split in the 10th to assure us the victory).
Back to being busy, it sucks. This is why people get stressed out and hate their lives. If I was in Bora Bora right now waking up and sipping on a Pina Colada, I would be happier. I’m not complaining because I would be complaining if nothing was going on and work was dead and I got to read the Journal. It’s truly bizarre how your mind always wants whatever it isn’t having.
