Writing advice.

Guy at work: How long did it take you to get to work today?
Me: One and a half hours. (note: This was 55 minutes longer than my typical commute and minus a good audio book. You can only imagine how lovely it will be to work with me today.)
Guy at work: I don't want to offend you but did you know traffic causes premature aging?
Me: Uh - (makes a mental note to inspect for spontaneous appearance of grey hair and/or wrinkles in bathroom)
Guy at work: It's the stress. Maybe you should invent an in-car work out machine. So you can work out while in traffic.
Me: That is a fantastic idea.
Guy at work: Perhaps it would be more profitable than writing your novel.
Me: (drinks my too-hot mug of tea, thinking he is so right.)
