Earlier today I was feeling rather glum. I looked across my desk at all the work that wasn’t getting done and I wanted to call it quits. I was not succeeding and wanted the day to be done. Then I saw my calculator and remembered why calculators were invented and how I spent every single math class from 1994-2006: typing in the magical numerals 55378008, flipping the calculator upside down and laughing my head off. I did it. I laughed. It’s funny every time. (If you have never experienced the joy of this simple maneuver, I implore you to please whip out your own calculator – preferably a Texas Instruments calculator because their numerals render the message the best – and try it for yourself.)
Every day is a day. Nothing more, nothing less. You know how people say It’s just one of those days? They’re right. It is. And we’re all having one. It’s not worth getting too caught up in things because tomorrow’s another chance and also calculators remind us that life is hilarious.
I didn’t get a lot of work done today, but I did use an 8th grade calculator trick to brighten my spirits (and hopefully brighten yours, and hopefully you share it with a friend, and so on).
TH1S_day? = SUCC3SS.
