There’s nothing like a perfectly constructed sack lunch in the middle of the day to take your mind off work and allow you to eat, relax and read in comfort.
My book (which I don’t eat, of course), a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, some cookies, a banana, carrots, and a caffeine-free CokeTM. Eat for 10 minutes, read for 20 minutes and top it all off with a relaxing 30 minute nap.
Now that’s the life!
Sometimes, I really look forward to lunch. Today, for example. In about 20 minutes, I’ll pull out the lunch that I packed (PB&J, a peach, some sliced turkey for later on today), take it into my office, close the door, crack open ANALOG, and begin reading part 2 of Rollback. I’ll eat/read for about 30 minutes, then shut of the light, and nap for another 30 minutes. Nothing is more relaxing in the middle of a workday!
I’m really very anxious to get started on part 2 of Rollback. And as soon as that’s done, to fill in void of having to wait another month for part 3, I’ll get started on Fritz Leiber’s The Wanderer.
