    @netikras the sip on the empty mug is interesting.

    the last sip is a psychological thing. you know the mug is about to go empty, so your mind prepares for that and sends a satiation signal.

    but when you take the last sip without paying attention that doesn't happen, so you can't reach that satiation, leaving you a bit confused and depressed.

    you might also feel embarassed about being bothered by a so called first world problem, so add shame into the mix.

    @jesustricks when you do the last sip and don't notice it's the last one and then 3 minutes later you reach out for the mug hoping to "take one more sip, be it the last one - that's allright, but the sip is what I want right now"...

    And the mug is empty...

    Confusion, a little bit of anger, disappointment, [could it be all the 5 stsges? Feels familiar], formulating that as a [new] problem, looking for possible solutions, locking your PC and going to make another cup, coming back distracted by coleagues at the kitchen and finally having the sip which is no longer bringing the satisfaction you were hoping for nor is wanted that much.

    Needless to say - focus loss 😁
