Dreaming of tortoises

A co-worker was telling me a story about how she admires co-workers who can just work steadily. They set up their task, like maybe shelving three carts of books at the library, get to it, and step by step get it done.

I was a little surprised because I kind of thought this co-worker was that type of worker.

"No, no." She said when I suggested it. "I'm easily distracted and I can only work for awhile before having to wander off. But I wish I was that way. I really admire co-workers like that."

"Well that's the difference between you and I." I said.

She looked a little surprised. "You mean you're like that?"

"No, no." I said. "It's that co-workers like that just bug me."

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
