Over lunch with my favorite new-grad who is K-State bound in the fall:
Me: So, how's summer been so far?
Her: Pretty good!
Me: What have you been doing?
Her: Well, at first I did nothing. Just hung out with my friends'n'stuff. And it was awesome. And then I started working for my dad.
Me: Oh! How's that been?
Her: It's been okay. I mean, I like the job alright. It's pretty cool. Except...
Her: ...well, I started off working 8 hours a day and HOLY CRAP those days get so LONG!
Me (immediately depressed): Yeah.
Her: I mean to think of doing that EVERY DAY. DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY. For eight HOURS. In one PLACE!
Me (weakly): Yeah...
Her: I'm sure it gets easier though. Right?
