Blame the Supermoon

The Supermoon made everyone super crazy.  Yesterday could not end soon enough.

How do we handle hours that we dread but must endure?  It takes strength to turn down the portion of your mind that senses impending annoyance and focus on doing one thing at a time and doing it as well as you can.  We learn to enter a working dream state where we do not watch the minutes on the clock, as their passing reminds us of the brevity of life and opens queries like "why am I here?".  No, really, why am I here, at work?  While we learn to cloud the passing minutes,  we also learn to instinctually sense certain times: lunch, that point in the afternoon when we eat a little piece of candy, and closing.

If you do it right, you can, with practice, have sweet, foggy memories of the day.  And you can do it all over again.
