Debbie Downer should use the black and white copier instead

Overheard at the color copier:

Kim: "I can't stop yawning. Why do we yawn in the afternoon? I need a nap. Remember when you were a kid and you needed a nap and you never wanted to take one? And now that you're an adult all you want to do is take a nap and you can't. Why is that?"

Eileen (my tanorexic boss): "Because when you're a kid all you want to do is stay awake so you don't miss anything. Now that we're adults, Kim, we know what's out there. We know what we're missing!"

I really, really hope she isn't right. Although that does bring me back to that cheery comment my former co-worker made at happy hour—the one about the repetition of existence and how it turns life into a gray blob of goo.

But look at Junior, he's but a mere hatched chick and he's perfectly content to nap the afternoon away.

Too darned cute. I just got back from vacation and needed a nap at 10 AM this morning. One of these days, employers will replace the lunch break with the nap break.
