Who Says I Cannot Be Lazy
Ed, my old neighbor from Saskatchewan, phoned yesterday when I was taking a day off. Sometimes it is okay to be lazy. Even, Ed realized I had a duty to watch the old western, ‘Gunsmoke,’ on television since he is a western fan himself. Watching a DYI program on remodeling an old house, made me tired because of all the work they did in renewing the old house. I could have gone for a workout at the gym, but I had a flu shot, and I did not want put stress on my vaccinated arm. My old neighbor does not realize how busy and demanding retirement can become. I informed Ed that taking a lazy day off is an essential element of being retired.
“Wake up and be alert since I have called you,” Ed ordered. “Being lazy and zoned out on television is alright when you don’t have me to talk to, but now that I have called you, it is time for you to become alert and focused,” he continued.
