I’m big into efficiency, so it’s not surprising that, when I made my wife a paper-bagged sandwich for lunch yesterday morning, I made myself one too.
Saving time! Efficiency!
But all it did was give me a ready-made, right-there, on-demand, how-can-I-possibly-ignore-this sandwich right there next to the Brita pitcher… all morning.
The sandwich made it until about 10. Because double digits or something — close enough to lunch, right?
No, not really.
Come 12, I made another sandwich.
Efficiency, for its own sake, isn’t enough.
