Imagine you are looking ahead to a furlough day and taking seriously the piece of the agreement that specifies that you won’t actually do any work on that furlough day. To prevent yourself from backsliding by doing work to pass the time, do you:
A. Schedule a spa-day at a local salon (thus also helping offset, if only just a little, the hit local businesses take during furlough days).
B. Let chores at home pile up, ensuring that your time will be gobbled up by doing them (or by hiding from those depending on you to do them).
C. Come down with some gnarly cold that knocks you on your butt.
D. All of the above.
It’s not that I meant to choose D, but apparently my immune system didn’t get the memo.
Nonetheless, at the moment, my nails look great.
