"This is just a 15 minute power-nap like they raved about in the last time management course you sent me to." "Whew! Guess I left the top off the liquid paper." "I wasn't sleeping! I was meditating on the mission statement and envisioning a new paradigm!" "This is one of the seven habits of highly effective people!" "I was testing the keyboard for drool resistance." Actually doing a "Stress Level Elimination Exercise Plan" (SLEEP) you learned at the last mandatory seminar your boss made you attend. "I was doing a highly specific Yoga exercise to relieve work-related stress. Are you discriminatory towards people who practice Yoga?" "Darn! Why did you interrupt me? I had almost figured out a solution to our biggest problem." "The coffee machine is broken...." or "Someone must've put decaf in the wrong pot." "Boy, that cold medicine I took last night just won't wear off!" "Ah, the unique and unpredictable circadian rhythms of the workaholic!" "Wasn't sleeping. Was trying to pick up contact lens without hands."
