Ever tried lying in your bed all day long, doing nothing, and more of nothing, and a little more of nothing?
Light music playing in the background, day-dreaming about absolutely arbit stuff, falling off asleep, getting up, more whimsical contemplations…eating some food, reading Calvin and Hobbes cartoon strip in the newspaper, calling up some friend and having a long telephonic conversation with her/him, checking latest cricket score on cricinfo…….
Finally getting off the bed around 6 pm, having a shower (the feeling you get when you bath after a week is unparalleled) followed by a Cheese Burst pizza for dinner, a light discussion with a friend about frivolous issues, calling up her busy working in her office/college, some more music, watching a small documentary (or latest episode of HIMYM) on computer, more sleep….Ah! eternal bliss.
We are taught right from the time we are born that laziness/sloth is a vice, a sin. One should work hard so as to provide himself with means to enjoy life. Well, if one can enjoy so much just lying in bed, why work? I am again off to sleep.
“If I don’t get up by 4 in the afternoon, I feel like I’ve wasted the whole day”
