Some people think daydreaming is lazy, but we like to think of it as recharging the brain.

In fact, letting your mind wander and giving yourself a moment to get lost in thought is brilliant for creativity and problem-solving.

Not everyone understands this, however, so when your boss asks you what you're doing, try not to answer them with "shag all, Helen".

Some of life's most interesting questions are pondered while daydreaming at work.

Since Cadbury Twirl is bringing its Take Ten With Twirl pop-up on tour around Ireland this August — which invites members of the public to come chill out on a bean bag, place their phone in a signal-blocking pouch and write their thoughts in a notebook while enjoying a hot drink with a Twirl — we've decided to put together a list of some of the best questions to mull over when you really should be doing that final expense report.

Disclaimer: at least try to look like you're doing stuff by holding a pen or something.

Now sit back and ruminate on these conundrums....

1. Why do we see shapes in clouds?

First they're clouds, and the next moment they're dragons and spaceships....

2. Who put the alphabet in order?

It didn't just randomly happen... or did it?!

3. If Cinderella's shoes fit perfectly, why did they fall off?

It's almost as if it was just a convenient plot device...

4. What do pokémon do in their poké balls?

We like to believe it's a little paradise rather than a dark, claustrophobic little box.

5. Why it is called quicksand when it's so slow?

Whoever named it must've been seriously sarcastic.

6. Why do we instant message co-workers who are literally within whispering distance?

Am I the only one who finds this incredibly creepy?

7. How come my co-workers are incapable of making a decent cup of tea?

I mean there's bound to be YouTube tutorials they can watch.

8. Why is it called a hamburger when there's no ham in it?

Flagrant false advertising if you ask me.

9. Why is there always one co-worker who is either too hot or too cold?

Maybe there's a whole different climate on the other side of the desk.

10. Why do they put holes in crackers?

Those spaces could — and should — be filled with more cracker.

11. Why are Twirls so... Twirly?

Okay, we know when we come to this one it's time for a chocolate break.
