Fall into the Gap

Girl-E just finished a project, warranting a nice big checkmark on the to-do list. To-do lists are a particular pride and specialty of hers, and her checkmarks have quite a flourish. Anyway, she finished the thing 35 minutes before a big lunch meeting. Clearly, one can do nothing with only 35 minutes, especially the bleary-eyed 35 minutes before lunch. One can also do nothing in the 35 minutes before scheduled phone call, or the 55 minutes before 5:00. I mean, really, one needs mental space to be truly productive, unrestrained by the knowledge of a fast approaching commitment or quittin' time. Seriously, people should be paid extra for even being available to coworkers during these periods that by all accounts are not useful for anything but shopping, blogging, balancing one's checkbook, and making to-do lists.
