Its funny what can pick you up at times. I was having a crappy morning at work, stuff just wasn’t happening. E-mail, code changes, IT guys in the basement…nothing seemed to be working today.
Actually, the guys in the basement never work, so that really shouldn’t bother me.
I left for lunch a few minutes early, sat down, ordered my meal, and waited. I was just full of piss and vinegar and wondering what else was going to go wrong.
My meal came (steak and eggs, I wanted to “split the difference between breakfast and lunch), and then “Drive My Car” by the Beatles came on. As I dove into the food and started tapping my feet to the music, I started to feel better. Suddenly, work stuff didn’t seem like a big deal anymore…the rest of the day lay ahead, but I was ready for it.
