A PL/SQL induced surreal trip


I was going through my drafts from a week ago, and I found this:

This afternoon while awaiting the completion of a terribly inefficient PL/SQL query, I found myself staring into space. That kind of distant look where you don’t care if your eyes are even focusing or not; where even the act of blinking seems like a chore. I could almost feel the life energy draining out of me as my MacBook Air SQL Develop’d for its dear life.

I closed my eyes momumtarily [sic]

… and then I woke up.

I have no idea what it was about. It’s utterly pointless, but surreal enough to warrant me publishing it. Maybe you can read between the lines and see something I can’t.
