I was having quite a good work day today. It had the potential to become stellar. Then around 2 o'clock I got an invitation to visit someone here in town I only get together with once a year. So I dropped everything and went.
Nice time, but I lost a couple of hours of work, both professional and personal, and I'm going to be paying for it this evening. And maybe tomorrow.
I wonder what became of the person who came up with the "Stop and smell the roses" thought. Yes, someone made a fortune on posters in the 1970s, but, really, who thought it was a good idea to really keep stopping whatever you're doing to smell roses? Or anything else, for that matter?
