in reply to Number of beverage containers currently on my desk

Here at work:
1 insulated coffee mug half full
1 Dr. Pepper can almost empty
1 empty water glass

Home:
None. My wife made me throw them out two days ago. :(
I miss them greatly. I had a nice big collection going too!
I must have had at least 36 empty DP cans strown about.
We had some good times together. I would start feeling run down
so I'd pop open another one and start chugging.
Next thing I know, I'm feeling great again and ready to keep on working!


My thoughts are mine and mine alone.
They did not originate with the voices in my head.
Do not listen to what they say, it's all lies.

    Ouch, I know how that feels. Every Wednesday night (Thursday is recycling day) my wife collects the corpses of my fallen comrades all the flat surfaces within arm's reach of my desk and dumps them unceremoniously in the bin at the curb.

    On a happier note, I finally found my 52oz insulated mug in the garage and am making that a permanent fixture of my desk at work. Despite the fact that its size is not a power of 2, it makes me happy by reducing my trips to the breakroom fridge. Laziness, after all...
