My work ethic is slightly different during baseball season than it is the other half of the year. Most of what I do could be done at any time of the day or night. In fact, thereís almost no reason for me to be chained to the house and the desk all day every day, except that I have to be available to answer the phone. Thatís my job. Only, as you know, I hardly ever do answer, unless itís someone I know whoís calling.
My attitude about this should be that Iím grateful to have a job with so much more flexibility than most people get. And intellectually, that is my attitude, most of the time. Emotionally, though, itís a tug-of-war. I went back and forth with myself all day over whether I needed to be working or not. I knew the Giants game started at 4:00 pm, and I like working during the game, so I kind of thought I should maybe get some reading (or napping) done during the day, since I might be working well into the evening.
