My ultimate comfort food. When I was an overworked, underpaid admin assistant, there was a time when half our department was out on leave. I was tasked with training new people and somehow volunteered for way more responsibilities than what was healthy for my stress levels. On really rough days, I’d sneak over to my coworker Lauren’s cubicle, plop down on her filing cabinet and say with a sigh, “It’s a cheeseburger day.”
When the world overwhelms with projects and emails, drama and deadlines, I find solace in a soft bun, melty cheese, smokey char and slightly pink interior of a juicy burger.
