My made up job with Kramerica Industries* has me doing a lot of different things, which I love, but there are some days when I have to spend several hours at my desk on my computer, typing and typing and typing. And my other job as a Woman of Elegant Leisure has me at my craft desk hunched over teeny scraps of felt for hours on end. So there are often times when I just can't handle sitting that long and I'll get up and do a few lunges or I'll put on some music and have an impromptu solo dance party**. Well, today I was really feeling it but I had to get a lot of stuff done so I got resourceful:
I moved my computer to my wee small kitchen so I could stand at the counter and type. It did the trick and I even seemed to work faster. To reward myself for being such a genius I had a bowl of Chocolate Marshmallow Mateys. Yeah, that's right. CHOCOLATE. MARSHMALLOW. MATEYS! Only the greatest breakfast cereal EVER.
*For the curious: I work part time for a business marketing/consulting firm - because I have so much experience in that field - and I do odds and ends for them.
**A cute but entirely unrelated story: I was watching my friend's kids the other day and I was listing off suggestions to the older one of things we could do, "We could play with Legos," "Um, no." "We could read a book." "Um, no." "We could choreograph an elaborate dance routine to perform for your mom when she gets home." He looked at me suspiciously, and also, like I was crazy, "I don't even know what that means." We ended up taking a walk and then drawing pictures of animals and ice cream trucks.
