A local office man has today been forced to block out a lot of noise, as he once again deals with one of life’s daily enigmas.

Betoota Heights finance guy Brad Wilson has had to grapple with the temptations of a non-poach chicken-based meal for lunch, something which is understandably quite a battle for a hungry boy.

Tab-flicking his way towards his lunch break in his Old City District office, Wilson said he had to put his lunchtime blinkers on to try and focus his mind upon staying strong.

Known as winkers, blinders, or blinkers, the device is more commonly associated with equine animals and is used to stop them from getting distracted.

The device gets horses to focus on what is in front; for example encouraging them to pay attention to the race rather than to distractions such as crowds, or keeping them from being distracted or spooked, especially on crowded city streets.

However, the horse device has now been modified by Wilson, to help him from getting distracted by $10 Thai Special and crispy pork Banh mi’s from down the road.

“Yeah, they are my special lunchtime blinkers,” explained the hungry Crossfitter.

“Obviously when you compare plain rice, poached chicken, and asparagus with the delicacies that get brought in by my colleagues, it’s quite a task to resist temptation.”

“So these blinkers help me focus on my macros and the end goal at hand.”

“They aren’t particularly comfortable, but they get the job done,” he said.

“Sorry, I’ve gotta get my lunch now,” said the visibly dazed young man who looked like he was about to pass out, before wandering off.

More to come.
