Sitting on the other side of the laptop screen is a youngish creature staring intently at a spot on a trope that could use another example, only she has too many words and not enough skill to make it zing like everybody else's, so she shrugs and goes to the next page, and discovers more things to waste time on.
On the balcony grow strawberries, chamomile, and peppermint. The flapjacks aren't edible.
Books tower up around her: fantasy, sci fi, theology, philosophy, and an astonishing number of hymnals.
And then she discovered that this was one site that the guardians of workplace productivity have never tagged for blocking. They must all be tropers.
