I'm home for lunch. It's 65 degrees out. I'm working Saturday and probably Sunday, and I just spent my morning dealing with the most difficult woman on the planet. I think I should just hop in my bike and take the rest of today day off.

Yes. And I'll join you. Nothing like coming out of a meeting wanting to strangle your client (and in a VERY rare occurrence) and your PM. I need a bike ride. Let's go--

Anytime you feel inclined to ask this question the answer has to be yes.

I think it would be a very bad idea. You should work. In fact, you should do more work than you usually do to make up for such an unprofessional and irresponsible idea. I'll email you some estimates I'm working on and instructions on how to do them. I'll be out riding, if you need me.

If you stay and work the government’s gonna want a hefty chunk of what you produce. If you opt for the ride uncle sam will let you keep all the enjoyment and fitness benefits to yourself
