Tired Versus Lazy

You've heard the old saying: He hasn't a lazy bone in his body. Do you think that's true? Do you think there are some folk who NEVER show a sign of laziness?

Let me ask you this:

Is it laziness to:

  • Choose an easier task over a harder one?
  • Choose to ignore something that needs to be done because you want to do something else?
  • Choose a career that is not manual?

Are you tired when:

  • Your body aches and you don't feel like sweeping?
  • When you did your 2 miles walk, but don't feel like pulling the weeds in your garden?
  • When you do the dishes, the wash, and sweep, but don't have the energy to clean the bath?

Is it laziness to:

  • Get the best parking spot so you don't have to walk so far?
  • Take a mid-day nap?
  • Take the elevator instead of the stairs?

Are you too tired when:
  • you give the small dog a bath but don't want to wrestle with the big one?
  • Give the rooms a lick and a promise instead of thoroughly scrubbing down the whole house? After all, you did do spring cleaning.
  • Go through the drive through car wash instead of washing your car at home?
  • Eat out three times a week instead of cooking?

Just thought I'd ask. Snicker.
You aren't feeling guilty, are you?

Well, . . . maybe. But I like it, so that cancels out any laziness, doesn't it?
