11/16/10 shoulda stayed home and played Zelda one more day

There's a law of diminishing returns that hits hard when you come into work when you're still kind of sick if you don't wait long enough. What happens is, the work that you couldn't do when you were away is still there to do, because you haven't been away for long enough for the crises engendered by your absence to pass, plus, they put off putting a few things on your desk (sending that email, scheduling that meeting) knowing you'd be back, not to mention the day-to-day drama that is still ongoing.

So really, you're dealing with yesterday's shit, the shit that might have been done yesterday but now HAS to be done today, plus today's shit, all in one day. And you feel like there's a heavy stone on your chest and all the Mucinex(tm) in the world can't lift it.
