The Dangers of Working At Home

I was researching high school mountain bike racing for a story when hunger or boredom or the need to change positions distracted me. Rice Crispy treats would fix everything. The recipe appeared on my screen. I had the ingredients on hand: Rice Crispies were on sale yesterday so I'd bought two boxes and I have mini-marshmallows since it’s hot cocoa season. You can use mini-marshmallows. The recipe says so. It was a sign.

In less than ten minutes I’d made them, devoured the Crispies crust in the bowl and consumed three still pliable squares. Back to writing. First, though, I think I'll make peppermint tea to complement the lingering sweet aftertaste. Then back to work. I promise. Although maybe I should go for a walk now.
