A Time of Rest

I’m rapidly trying to tie up loose ends as I transition to a change in work but it’s going to take me a bit to really finish everything off as I keep finding projects I never finished clashing with my nature as a completist so I asked my work-giver if he’d be taking time off for the holidays.

Him: I may be taking a longer than usual time for the holidays this year.
Me: That’s nice, how long?
Him: Probably Christmas and the day after.
Me: That’s it?
Him: I’m stretching it this year.

Stupid cyborgs.
