The Fortress of Solitude
Do you ever have times when things at work get overwhelmingly hectic? The phone is ringing off the hook, people keep giving you projects, and to make matters worse, you forget to wear deodorant?
At times like this, I have found a refuge of peace in the family bathroom in our office. I don't use the facilities in the traditional way, but just like the idea that I can just shut the door and no one will disturb me.
Sometimes, I like to go in there for; oh I don’t know, like, 3 or 30 minutes just to get away from it all.
Sometimes I like to just close my eyes and shut away the world, much like the Calgon commercials of yesteryear, minus the bubbles.
As I lay on the coolness of the tile it takes all the stress away.
