Thoughts I Cannot Control

Thoughts I Cannot Control

 

Tonight we had an excruciatingly painful meeting at work. It was tense, it was dramatic and it was inconclusive. So, my mind is still reeling with thoughts and feelings and I cannot sleep despite the exhaustion that I faced before my 45 minute drive home when the meeting ended at 10pm!
I was totally following along in the meeting but I didn’t really have a place or an opinion to say during the meeting so I had no outlet for my thoughts. I also hadn’t eaten since 11:30am.
15 minutes into the meeting I could feel the tension in the air. All I could think about was the leftover Tostitos cheese in a jar in our fridge at home. I was trying to remember if there were any tortilla chips left.
40 minutes into the meeting the tension level jumped three or four levels and I contemplated how many Mountain Dews I’d have to drink to make my urine the same color.
63 minutes into the meeting I wondered if I’d have to remove all other food and drink from my diet on the same day that I attempted the Mountain Dew color experiment.
79 minutes into the meeting I felt the urge to go to the bathroom. I did. It wasn’t any pretty color or anything.
80 minutes in the intensity level picked up and I could feel my foul starvation scented breath crawl up my throat.
I won’t narrate any further because the meeting got even more intense and my mind got even more weird.
