...you eliminate moisturizer from your nightly routine to save 20 seconds.
...you feel decadent for taking time off for oral surgery.
...you offer your trainer more money if he will let you off early.
...waiting for the light to turn green seems like a vacation.
...you decide to drink less water because those trips to the bathroom burn up precious minutes.
...you bring your laptop to the hospital so that while you are in labor you can get in some work between contractions.
...you mentally multitask during sex.
...you return phone calls in the shower, scratching memos to yourself on a bar of soap with your fingernails.
...you try to buy yourself two extra hours a week by announcing to your shrink that you're quitting because you have absolutely no more problems! (She laughs and says she'll see you next week.)
