On Laziness and Writing #TuesdayTidbit #Jottings #Inspiration

Good morning, everyone.

Author and poet Abbie Johnson Taylor is on a bit of a rant this morning on laziness. I love it and bet you will too.

Let’s see what Abbie’s on about.

On Laziness and Writing #TuesdayTidbit #Jottings #Inspiration

I was disgusted to run across a series of short, true stories in the September issue of Reader’s Digest about how people went to great lengths to be lazy. One woman explained how her husband tied a piece of string to their outdoor garbage bin from their second-floor balcony, so all they had to do was pull the string, and the lid would open, and they could toss their garbage into the bin without missing it. For heaven’s sake!

If you’re in a wheelchair or have difficulty walking, that’s one thing. But if you have two perfectly good legs, why not just carry the garbage downstairs and outside and place it in the bin? That would be a great source of exercise.

Because someone else didn’t want to walk fifty feet to his mailbox, he attached a tennis ball to the mailbox with a piece of fishing line in such a way that he would know when the mail arrived.
