Break Time

Yesterday, Ryan asked the musical question, “What’s on your nightstand?” Today I’m matching his question with the even-less-musical question, “When do you take breaks at work?”

I try to take one every 30 seconds. But that doesn’t work very well.

I work out of the house - I take a break whenever I feel like it. The downside is when I really busy I never feel like I'm leave the office!I take lunch eight at noon usually and watch a little Screensavers on TechTV with my PB&J.

I wish I could take a break. But I am a special education teacher of students with severe and profound disabilities. The only time I get a break is when I have my 25 minute lunch and that is when and if I don't have a sick student in my room. My real break comes at 4:00pm when my students are safely on their busses to go home for the day.

God bless you Jax. My mom taught special education for several years. She was always tired when she got home, but she always commented on what a great reward she got when one of her students learned something new. More power to you Jax!

Oh, did you want me to comment on the ping? I hate to get in a rut, but I seem to take breaks at 9 AM and 3 PM for the regular dose of Diet Coke and then an hour lunch in between. Not too exciting.

I try to take a break every 20 minutes. I have this enormous monitor that's almost always in my field of view. So, to rest my eyes and stretch my legs, I take a lap around the office. Helps me keep up on gossip too...



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
