Sometimes, it’s hard to get out of bed. And once I climb out of bed and into my recliner, it’s hard to get out of it. I don’t feel like doing anything. Even turning on the TV can be too much of an effort. Have you ever had those days? Don’t even try to lie.
Laziness is the mother of all bad habits. But, ultimately, she is a mother, and we should respect her. Seriously, though. There’s nothing wrong with being lazy every now and again. Everything is go, go, go in today’s world. It’s exhausting, so we need a moment to relax and catch our breath.
What kind of exercise do lazy people do? Diddly-squats.
It’s like Ferris Bueller once said, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” Shouldn’t we all aspire to be Ferris once in a while? You know, without the part about wrecking a 1961 Ferrari Spyder.
So, we’ll be lazy on occasion to make sure we don’t miss any part of life. At least, that’s our story and we’re sticking to it.
Choose When to Be Lazy
Laziness has to be a decision rather than a way of life. You can’t expect to accomplish anything in life if you lie around every day. How will things get done?
Instead, it’s best to choose to be lazy. You know, decide to be as useless as the “g” in lasagna. Speaking of which, I could really go for a big chunk of lasagna right now, but that would require me to get off the couch.
I’ve been known to put the “pro” in procrastinate. When I look at my to-do list, it’s easier to yawn and shove it aside. Simply looking at everything I have to get done makes me tired. I’ll get around to it eventually. But “eventually” is still a ways off from the present.
I put the “Pro” in procrastinate.
There’s a Norwegian proverb that says, “The lazier a man is, the more he plans to do tomorrow.” Nothing has ever resonated stronger with me. And at this rate, I’m going to be very busy tomorrow.
It’s okay, though. Having a lazy day or two can actually lead to being more productive the following day.
Laziness is a chance to reset. Think of it like your phone being in low-battery mode. You can still operate, but you won’t be able to do absolutely everything. And once you get your phone on charge, you’re ready to do it all again. After a day of loafing around, I’m fully recharged and ready to face all of life’s challenges.
The Lazy Naming Game
Everything has a name. Not always a good name, but a name, nonetheless.
Some names are exciting and fun. Others leave you scratching your head trying to figure out where they were going with that. Sometimes, the name of something has a fun origin story. Other times, the name was purely accidental.
Deciding what to name something should require some effort, right? After all, that’s the name it’s going to have forever. The fireplace seems a bit too lazy, don’t you think? They literally just took a look at it and called it what it was. They didn’t even bother to get creative.
We’re not saying that we’re any better. Look at that building over there. It looks like a barn made with poles. I guess we’ll call it a pole barn.
We’re allowed to make fun of ourselves because it’s what we do best in Sherman Country.
When we’re not being lazy, though, we prefer the term “barndominium,” especially when it’s talking about residential buildings. Fancy, right? Barns are usually an open-concept design while a condominium is a form of residential housing. When you combine the two, you get a non-traditional home with an open layout.
And our barndominiums are made of steel, ensuring that they are not only durable but also capable of withstanding all of the elements found year-round in Sherman Country. You could say they are quality erections. Yes, we went there. And there’s no laziness when it comes to that trademarked slogan. We worked hard on that one.
Who Said You Can’t Be Lazy AND Get What You Want?
Laziness doesn’t mean that you can’t get what you want. Everyone assumes that if you loaf around, you’ll never get anywhere. That’s not true at all. In fact, it’s possible to avoid the whole DIY thing and still get quality erections. Why bother picking up a hammer when someone else will do it for you?
We believe in working smarter, not harder. And if that means that we’re called lazy on occasion, so be it.
“You can’t teach people to be lazy – either they have it, or they don’t.” -Dagwood Bumstead
