1. It sounds as if the person is working very hard to handle whatever comes into her in-tray so it doesn't accumulate a large amount of unhandled work. The use of "tray" makes it sound like a desk in an office. If it were e-mail, would most likely use "box".Originally Posted by catie
2. That makes little sense. I would guess that the person means that exercise needs to be balanced with eating.
3. Alcohol units is strange. I assume that means drinks. This person has 14 drinks at a New Year's Eve party, but is rationalizing it as spread over two days, since the party continued past midnight on the first day.
