NSFW

Five to seven days a week you’ll find me in an office. The windows will be closed, the conditioned air will be pumping, my glasses will be aimed at a screen, my hands will be typing and clicking as fast as I can, and every once in a while I’ll stuff the food I brought from home into my mouth. It’s not how I ever wanted to spend my life, but it’s a living.

Today I decided to take a break.

Here’s how I take a break:
Push my whip back (that’s my desk chair).
Stand up and walk away from the desk.
Take my clothes off in the office bathroom and put a wetsuit on.
Ask officemates if they want to go with me (no takers, just one gawker with a camera).
Ride the elevator from the 6th floor down to the lobby.
Walk two blocks to Portalnd’s Waterfront Park.
Go a little further to the Steel Bridge.
Walk out halfway.
Grab the railing and fling myself off the bridge.
Fall until I think I’m dead.
Splash.
Come up for air.
Swim to the shore.
Walk back to the office.
Shower in the bathroom.
Put dry clothes back on.
Sit back in my whip.
Get back to work.
