There’s a line in that fantastic movie Galaxy Quest where Monk from Wings teleports a humongous rock monster into a room full of villain lizard-guys, and he and a few other protagonists watch the ensuing chaos on a monitor, and he says, “It’s the simple things in life that you treasure.”
I had a similar moment today.
I had zipped out and picked up a modest but delicious meal to-go from In-N-Out Burger, and brought it back to work to eat at my desk while watching the newest episode of Naruto.
But instead of just trotting in through the side entrance as I normally would have, I made a point of using the back entrance, and waltzed right through the gym.
Boy did I feel devious as I carried my fragrant meal in front the rows of sweating stationary bicyclists, past all the people pumping iron, and beyond those lying on the floor doing crunches.
Then I hopped in the elevator, zipped up four floors to my desk, and chowed down.
