I’m taking a duvet day today.
The dog literally ate my last shoe and peed on the couch … bad dog.
I’m in good humour so decided to consciously take a day away from thinking about business … life … economic crisis … world peace … and concentrate on the small stuff … what to have with my cuppa tea … which soap to watch … and which books to re read … when to cook the hamburgers.
Conscious lolling and lethargy is an artform that takes years to develop … so be very careful if you’re a newbie at it.
Olympic style lollers (or lethargytes to the afficianados) like myself have developed a few key skills that I’m happy to share with you:
- be clear to everyone that you’re having a lolling day
- no reasons need to be given … do you have to give reasons when you exercise?
- enjoy the warmth and weight of your duvet as you snuggle under it
- be sure to have enough favourite food in the house
- under no circumstances do you go outside
- no cleaning of the home is permitted during the lolling period
- do not look at any kind of time piece … this is time away from time
- under no circumstances do you let this thought in your head ‘I feel guilty … I should be…’
I revel in my professional lolling skills … and am proud to share this information with you.
Most of my neighbours think I’m a bit dotty and wonder if I’m having depressive episodes or just moody … some of them tell each other that I’m ‘hibernating’.
Funny that … how people feel that every moment has to be filled with purposeful activity … just writing those words made me tired.
As you probably know from reading this blog … I don’t care or fuss too much about other people’s opinions of me … one of those things that are soooo out of my control.
What I do have control over is how I choose to spend my time … and today I choose to loll … and in the best Lennon tradition … if you do something … you do it to the best of your ability.
