Who ever came up with "kick yourself"? Have you ever tried? It's nigh on impossible! I suppose, if you were double-jointed it could be done. Otherwise, you'd be left with trying to kick your own ankle. Which is painful. Yes, research was done on this subject with much personal sacrifice by yerstruly.
Watches can be very cruel. Many, many hours can go by in my mind, yet, when I look at my watch, only one real hour has passed. It is a proven fact that weekend time moves at lightspeed rates, as opposed to workweek time, which crawwwwwls along.
More musing on mirrors. Besides being startled most times when I look at my image (mind: 30 vs. mirror: reality), during the week I tend to be busy on home-type things right up until moments before I have to jettison myself out the door for my commute to work. I think it might be helpful to have a glimpse in the mirror BEFORE I walk into the office.
There is a smoking area - of which the borders are very hazy (harharhar) - outside of our office building. Most mornings, two young 'gofers' who work for a large law firm in the building are generally hanging out, smoking, slouching and texting like mad, when I enter the building. This morning, we all went into the elevator at the same time. They were eyeing my red Netflix dvd return envelope and my Dansko clogs. I looked them in the eye(s) and said, "Yes, I don't stream, text, tweet, or smoke. I am SO not cool." Only middle age has given me the moxie to be myself and proud of it.
