This week I took two days off, because I felt like not working. After today I will have only worked 3 days this week. The lesson I have learned? This should be the normal workweek. 3 days should be the amount of days we work and 4 days should be the amount of days we have off. We should be working for 8 hours, going home complaining because we have to work so many days a week. We should be complaining that we can’t retire at 55. We should be complaining that 8 hours is such a long day at work and we need a vacation soon because it is so stressful. Stay at home moms should be complaining that their husbands are always working long three days weeks and they need to be spending more 5 day weekends with their kids.
I love video games because they take my mind from a place called work. I press a button and the character on the screen does all the work. Hopefully when I press the button the character does something cool, like leaps tall buildings, runs really fast, or shoots laser beams out of his or her hands. When I play I game I don’t want to farm. I went to a farm once to help transport chickens from a truck to a cage. It was really early in the morning and it was a whole lot of work and it was stinky and I got paid maybe several dollars less than minimum wage, which was several dollars an hour at the time. So if I drive a tractor through your house when you send me a request me to play Farmville, you might know why now. Just saying.
Labor day weekened is coming up, so we all have really ambitious plans, right? Avoiding campgrounds, lakes, waterparks and amusement parks, concerts and the daylight are some of the activities I plan on doing. If I do feel like doing anything I am almost positive it will be recreating one of the slow snails in that movie Turbo. I’ll let the fast snails get all the credit. I will be the one taking fifteen minutes to open my eyelids in the the morning, then sitting on the couch playing video games simulating a superhero who has the power to save mankind, but just doesn’t feel like it and then sending people real tractors that send me Farmville requests. I will also be pondering why next week has so many work days.
That is the Labor I will be doing.
