I just got out of a work meeting, and I should really be given some kind of an award. A spot bonus, a salary increase, job title promotion, a certificate with gold stars....some kind of recognition.! It took all the strength I had in me to stay awake and to appear sober, coherent, and interested. That's a lot of effort displayed by me, especially since I'm currently hopped up on Vicodin, Ibuprofen, and a muscle relaxer (Flexiril.....how I love Thee!)
Today's meeting topic really doesn't impact my job duties, it was more of an FYI for me. So, I had to keep my mind busy, or else I'd end up SOL (snoring out loud). In order to keep up the appearance that I was generally interested in the material being presented, I did the following:
- For all of the people who made fashion mistakes this morning, I undressed them (mentally) and then redressed them in much better looking/fitting clothes.
- I mentally reworked the refreshment table. Cookies, veggies, water, orange juice, and coffee?? So weak! I wanted lox & bagels, fresh berries in a watermelon "bowl", an omelette bar, a Mimosa station, melon wrapped in prosciutto, etc...
- I schemed of ways to smuggle out the large, glass bucket, that was being used to store ice...I think it'd look much better back at my place...full of chilled champagne.
- I furtively browsed the Internet on my phone, and even played Pac-Man on it, but that didn't last long...the battery started to get low real fast.
After lunch, I came back to my desk only to find out that I have just been added to yet another meeting at 2:30...Guess I better charge up my phone !
