It was a dark day because I had to go to work when all I really wanted to do was stay home, sleep, and attack the leftovers.
We operated with a skeleton crew at work, and the day just dragged. Sure, a quiet day is never a bad thing, but the lack of phone calls and urgent matters requiring my immediate attention seemed to mock me.
So I did what any other Modern Philosopher in a workday crisis should do…I busted out some Foo Fighters.
My Boy Scout background taught me to always be prepared, and that is why my “Wasting Light” CD is always in my bag.
If you’ve never listened to this particular CD all the way through, I highly recommend it. It’s one kick ass song after another, culminating with “Walk”, which is my favorite song on the album and always needs to be listened to twice.
Needless to say, things started looking up once I had my injection of Foo Fighters. I’m sure the few coworkers within earshot of me really appreciated my singing along to the music, and probably had their days kick started as well.
All I know is that when Dave Grohl and the boys decide to take charge of my work day, a boring Black Friday can get very exciting after just a song or two.
And you don’t have to take my word for it. The next time work has the pillow of boredom pressed over your face in an attempt to kill off the last of your brain cells, crank up some Foo Fighters and let me know what happens.
Happy Friday, Modern Philosophers! We survived another week!
