Have you ever had your whole day turned around by a dump?
Some context first: I've been having a problem with fissures, so I started taking fiber gummies to see if they help.
So this morning, I woke up feeling extra crappy. I have a long commute, and I spent the whole way cursing the general state of the world. Once I get to work, everyone else is in a good mood because it's Friday and I hate it. I stare at the computer, looking at work I don't know how to do, because the meeting where we're supposed to be figuring it out isn't until after I'm supposed to do it, so I just put whatever looks right. I go to the meeting, which gets uncomfortable since my partner in the office is lazy and disinterested, which causes my boss to zero in on him while I'm sitting right there. There's nothing I can do to help him. He gets pulled aside right after the meeting and I fear that I'm next.
I leave to use the restroom and... well, I take what is simultaneously the smoothest, cleanest, and biggest dump I've taken in literally weeks.
Suddenly, the world just seems brighter. I feel lighter. I remember that my own performance is good and my coworker's doesn't affect me. My best guess on the work I was doing happened to be correct because I'm smart and I understand the project. The long commute home's a good excuse to be alone, tune out, and focus on good vibes. And it's Friday! Woo!
Literally went from emo to cheerleader over the span of a few minutes.
