The best laid plans

My plans to overachieve via working from home were thwarted by the fact that my body interprets wearing slippers as a signal to mentally check out and not do anything productive. Add to this the intense craving for diet coke and a supply of only “real” soda kept on site for friends. After drinking 3 glasses, I’ve realized that this level of high-fructose corn syrup is the equivalent of 3 doses of bear tranquilizer.
