COWORKER: So, what’re you gonna do tonight?
ME: I think I’m gonna go home, do the normal stuff — relax, quick nap, shower, dinner — and then get some writing done.
[CUT TO LATER — MY APARTMENT]
ME: Ahhhh, good to be home! Change clothes…put new ice cream in freezer…open up computer, check e-mail…huh, seems I got a package in the mail, wonder what it is….
ME: Well played, Productivity Gods. Well played, indeed.
[I look at the book I’m already reading and enjoying, but for which I suddenly feel significantly less enthusiasm….]
