Aaron Adamson pushed himself back from his desk. His eyes were sore and his body was tired, but he was not sleepy. Squinting, and then tightly closing and rubbing his eyes, he moved the mouse and clicked to save his work.
His desk was a mess.
Papers were all over; some were stacked, others were layered over each other like large confetti, but he knew where each sheet he needed was and at the moment did not want to spend time being neat when on his programming roll. Neatness could wait for Aaron until he was ready to quit work for the time; and wait neatness did.
Not only were his papers scattered, but there were empty soda cans still on the desk and falling out of an overfull garbage can. Two empty pizza boxes were on the floor by the garbage can, and had some of the overflow land on them. The ashtray was full, even though he did not smoke much, just a couple cigarettes a day, but it added up over time. Aaron finished the file and was ready to move to the next one, which could wait some for his body to recharge; he worked almost non-stop on the new program for a week, with previous breaks generally being to eat, use the restroom, bathe and sleep.
