Agony and solace of a working day

Quick post before bedtime, which I will use as a sort of catharsis. I got ridiculously busy today at work, after a bad night of sleep, which I thought would make things worse. They didn't exactly get worse, but I felt clinically dead by the end of the day. I had to stay late too. I had a short and late lunch break. In the middle of the day, one of my colleagues was going to the shop and asked us if we needed anything: ''Sandwich, crisps, chocolate, a Coke?'' I said: ''Just a line or two''. This is a great unknown line if there ever was one, and it illustrates my state of mind. It made people laugh too.

But there were some bright sides to it, little things that cheered me up. Well, one thing: there was a pound coin when I arrived at my usual seat in the morning train. I will buy myself a treat with it. It's not as cool as a Swaziland coin, but still, it did brighten my grey day. When I mentioned on my Facebook wall the hard day at work, my brother gave me a YouTube link to Matthew and Son. I never gave much attention to this song, but just thought that it really illustrated working life pretty well. If there was a song about my day, there would be the coin and craving of chocolate in it. But I hope you enjoy this song, that you find solace in it for every hard day of work.

Love that song, back in Cat Stevens' "lacy poet shirt" days, LOL! I hope tomorrow is an easier day at work for you.

Cat Stevens?!?!

Je n'te parle pas de la chanson de Zacharie.

@Debra-I like Cat Stevens from when he was not a conservative Muslim yet.
@Loulou-Ah oui, la chanson de Zachary Richard. Pas tout à fait moi, parce que je travaille, quand même.
