The day after a road trip I usually call out of work to take a day of rest. Â This isn’t an absolute necessity but I like to get two nights sleep in my own bed, have some time to review photos, and then bake something for my coworkers. Â This time was different. Â I was going to go into work on Monday morning because dammit adults go into work on Monday mornings and I am an adult in the eyes of the law.
I showered and shaved after a few hours of sleep and rolled into work before 10 which is early for me. Â My hope for a slow ramp-up died in the arms of two emergency testing requests which had me stay until after eight that evening. Â Today was supposed to be my first day of at least faking adulthood for the first time in a while and it sucked. Â But on the drive home I noted that I had made enough money to buy two FiberOne bars a day for a year. Â Maybe adulthood has its perks.
