You know what I think? No? Well I'll tell you then. I think that the first day back from vacation should also be a day of vacation. Because it is utterly impossible, it seems to me, to get back in the groove anyway. So, for example, when the first day back is scheduled to be Monday Jan 5, it should actually just be Tuesday, Jan 6. That way I don't have to start my first day back at work, at the start of a brand new year, feeling guilty for getting nothing done. What kind of a way is that to start a year? It's totally counter-productive! Now I'm just going to feel guilty all night, which means I may sleep badly, which means tomorrow might also be non-productive because I'm too tired! See? If corporate America just listened to me, we'd all be much better workers. We'd get our vacation, then we'd get the extra day to psych up for the end of vacation, and THEN we'd go back to work. And then we'd all work super hard that day, making better products that everyone would want to buy, stimulating the economy by putting more money back in circulation, which would help scoop our country back out of the toilet and on the road to prosperity and joy again.
Or, to rephrase this blog post in a totally different way:
I'm sorry I played Bejeweled at work today. It won't happen again.
