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.
