Feeling a bit like this fish lately. There's a comfortable (and stylish!) chair looming behind me, but I can't sit in it. I can only sit on the coral. Ouch. No thanks.
This is not a commentary on my office desk chairs, however. They are exceptionally pleasant and supportive, and not situated in a bed of gravel.
So far today time is creeping by. That's good. I have plenty to fill it with.
