Ruminations

Postby KatyBr » Wed Jun 01, 2005 4:26 pm

Sometimes when I'm bored at work, I stare at my
computer screen so long that it appears as if there
were several small people staring back at me, like
my counterparts in some other world far, far away.
The realization that it's a reflection of my
co-workers standing behind me laughing tends
to diminish the romantic notion a bit, though.

Rumination brings back some nice memories of a farm back in Vermont (no chamors involved). Oh, well...
