Mental Associations

This is a simple story: I received a package slip in my mailbox today after lunch.

First thought: it's an offer letter! Action: immediately head to the mail room to find out about the details of the offer. Hmmm... it's not a letter. It's a box.

Observation: address says gourmet cookies. First thought: must be my long due Valentines Day present! Action: inspect box. No Hong Kong address. Second thought: maybe it's a secret Valentine? Action: guilt trip myself.

Turns out it's a present from one of the recruiters, trying to entice me to sign the offer sheet. Oh. All that hype for nothing! It is, however, a good indication on how nervous I have become to any little thing in life. Time to relax.
