Phase 1 - Glee: SO nice! No colleagues. No questions. Such focus! In my kingdom I control the thermostat and the biscuits.
Phase 2 - Distraction: Who are all these day-time people
outside? Noise! Is that what my house sounds like in the day? Tea!
Phase 3 - ALONE: No human contact. Am now Gollum. Colleagues
don't even know I'm gone. Wait by door till Andrzej gets home.
