In case anyone looks at their programming life and thinks, “I’m going to go get a job with a drill. Seems way more satisfying.” Remember, the next morning your whole body will hurt. And you will likely look to your computer and remember that a desk job really isn’t a terrible idea. You feel better, you smell better, you’re not too tired at the end of the day to pull yourself together enough to shower before collapsing in the bed.
*disclaimer: I am in better shape than most people, I did stretch a lot yesterday and once last night before bed,....and I was doing repairs only on my own home and yard. Certainly could have been much more intensive work had I been working for a less compassionate boss than my wife.
