Mixing Business With Pleasure

I like to keep my work life separate from my personal life and try to maintain that the best I can. Today I failed! Could it be I have a one track mind? Am I consumed?

A couple of times a year at work we re-evaluate our price forecast. We review many sources of information and numerous factors are taken into consideration to come up with a proposal to present that reflects the current situation and what is perceived to be the future situation. One of the things we check out are the historical AECO and Nymex gas prices.

Today I was collecting information and compiling it to be part of the proposal.

A list of the AECO prices should have appeared as such:
$6.28/mmbtu
$7.06/mmbtu
$7:57/mmbtu
and so on and so on
(those into oil and gas know what I’m talking about here)

The list of AECO prices I prepared looked like this:
6:28/km
7:06/km
7:57/km
and so on and so on
(those into running know what I’m talking about here)

I looked at my list! It looked O.K. but a little off! There was something not quite right with the gas prices. I had a space cadet few seconds where I could not grasp what was going on. Something was wrong but I couldn’t put my finger on it! Then in the blink of an eye, it all fell into place and I thought good thing I didn’t pass this on before checking through it.

I haven’t run since the race on Sunday! The plan was to take a nice rest of about a week. Obviously, physically I’m not running but it appears that mentally I am!

I failed today and got my work all mixed up with my pleasure!
