My Facebook friends know that on Wednesdays, I like to celebrate "Hump Day", past the midpoint of which the week is all downhill, with the indulgence of a donut or two at my mid-morning break. Above you see two of my unwitting victims: a coconut frycake donut, and a glazed cruller. These I wash down with coffee (from that orange mug there), whilst either reading or talking with a coworker who is at my location of The Store two weeks per month.
And what do I read? Lots of stuff. But right now, of course, it's this:
I usually go on break about 10:30 in the morning, after I've been there about three hours. Other people take their breaks earlier than that, but I find that the day bogs down too quickly if I break too early. At one job I had, years ago, the work day started at 8:00 am, and lots of people in the office would take break at 9:00! I've never understood that -- how can you need a break after one hour of working? For me, late breaks and late lunches have always been the rule.
So how do you spend your breaks?
(I used Blogger's scheduled-posts ability to have this post go "live" at the time I usually go on break on Wednesdays. So, if you're reading this just as the post went live, I'm on break right now!)
