Yesterday, after lunch, I was falling asleep in my chair and feeling grouchy. I really wanted to go for a walk, but women’s dress shoes are just about the opposite of good walking shoes. Plus, I needed to be able to keep an eye on the office.
So, I slipped off my shoes and walked the long hallway over and over until I felt myself waking up and feeling less grouchy.
It was awesome! I mean, I felt foolish the whole time, just pacing up and down the hall for twenty minutes, and then mortified when some folks at the far end saw me and tried to hold the door for me like I might be going down the stairwell and I had to explain that I was just pacing.
But I felt better.
Like a hamster in a cage, but better.
