15 High Quality Things I Achieved Today When I Should Have Been Working

Siamese fighting fish
  1. Considered the pros and cons of getting another Siamese fighting fish.
  2. Remembered the scores of tiny fish carcasses I’d disposed of over the years, and thought Yeah maybe no.
  3. Contemplated switching careers and becoming an infographic designer.
  4. Failed to create even the most basic infographic and abandoned the effort in a blaze of obscenities.
  5. Repurposed an empty candle holder as a hair clip dispenser.
  6. Found I only had two hair clips, which looked tragic in the repurposed candle holder and made me sad.
  7. Cheered myself up with a snack of sweet potato crisps, using a tiny bowl to keep my portion size small.
  8. Refilled the bowl seventeen times.
  9. Lay down and rubbed my tummy while deciding to never again keep sweet potato crisps in the house.
  10. Wrote this.
  11. Researched getting a turtle.
  12. Did the menu planning for dinner. (Planned to order New York and Casablanca at Gourmet Pizza Kitchen. Secret ingredient: ask for them well done.)
  13. Fell into the Facebook vortex. Made hilarious and not-at-all obnoxious comments on friends’ posts.
  14. Forgot that Craig was recording a podcast and belted out a colossally off-key rendition of I Knew You Were Waiting.
  15. Put sweet potato crisps on the shopping list.
