Spinning My Wheels

SPINNING MY WHEELS

 

Normally I don’t sit still long enough to become bored because I find it fairly easy to stay busy, especially at home. Don’t tell the boss, but it’s harder at work. To combat this, I purchased a fidget spinner. I think that’s what they’re called. I bought it for all of us at the office so we could talk about our experiences with it on-air. The problem is that I can’t seem to put the thing down.

My spinner has really smooth bearings and spins for a long time when left alone so I give it a good turn and try to see how long it takes to wind down. It rarely gets to go very long because I’ll either stop it to set it spinning again or I’ll wave it around in the air to feel the inertia fighting my movements. Fascinating!

My advice; don’t get one. You just might find more time to play with it than you should. In fact, as I wrote this, I was spinning as the office went suddenly silent. I turned around to see my boss and a few others staring at me. I think my spinner is going to disappear.
