OK so I'm sick, there is some sort of flu like virus going around that I managed to develop. Maybe it's the new strain I keep hearing about, either way that means that I am foggy and falling farther behind.

When you attempt to focus work through illness without a break it can cause you to end up sicker than you started. Taking breaks, lots of breaks, allows your battery to recharge even if it is only temporary. 

You could end up turning yourself into someone less than competent even when performing tasks that you are actually good at otherwise. The errors that you do not  see will be seen by someone, and hopefully pointed out to you in a pleasant and helpful manner instead of rude and vengeful. This is the most helpful, especially when you are trying your best. 

Working or rather forgetting to work when you are ill is common. Those that have the leisure of knowing when the work day ends, have the luxury of calling in; there are times when they can even make up lost time and hours. Working from home does not allow me this luxury. I have managed to lose approximately a week to two weeks of actual working time as a result of illness and an inability to think clearly. 

The ramblings in this post make it clear that the illness is still effecting my  mind. I have taken to working in spurts, merely as long as the battery on my laptop will last, then laying down as it recharges. 

Do you work through illness? Do you go to work even when you are to tired to stand up? Are you known for letting your battery recharge even if it's only temporarily to get as much work done as you can until your battery winds completely down?

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
The word is regress, this piece comes in at 65 of the 75 word limit. For the official rules visit the M3 blog and join in the fun.
