"Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear to my cry; do not hold your peace at my tears. For I am your passing guest, an alien, like all my forebears. (Psalm 39:12 NRSV)
These are the ten best things to say if you get caught sleeping at your desk:
#10. "They told me at the blood bank this might happen."
#9. "This is just a 15 minute power-nap like they raved about in that time management course you sent me to."
#8. "Whew! Guess I left the top off the White-Out. You probably got here just in time!"
#7. "I wasn't sleeping! I was meditating on the mission statement and envisioning a new paradigm."
#6. "I was testing my keyboard for drool resistance."
#5. "I was doing a highly specific Yoga exercise to relieve work-related stress. Are you discriminatory toward people who practice Yoga?"
#4. "Darn! Why did you interrupt me? I had almost figured out a solution to our biggest problem."
#3. " The coffee machine is broken . . . "
#2. "Someone must've put decaf in the wrong pot . . . "
And the #1 best thing to say if you get caught sleeping at your desk . . . " . . . in His name. Amen."
Dear God, take the excuses away, as I spend each day with you in prayer. In Jesus name, Amen.
