Lookit the fuzzy distraction

Sam as a newly-hatched chick. I’d like to call your attention to the tiny fuzzy claw hooked over my little finger. Even at this age, pekin chickens have feathery feet.

I’m having some trouble adjusting to my regular working schedule after all this time. You mean, I have to go in to work tomorrow? But I went in to work today!

And this is why we don’t own any kind of animal that, generally speaking, can be eaten.

Stoaty, the first thing that popped into my aged head when I read your comment was Maynard G. Krebs’ (Bob Denver’s) trademark outburst!

When I was a young man I used to go out with cute chicks, but none of them were as cute as that Pekin pequeñito!

Husband and I decided to retire in the middle of this nonsense. I highly recommend it as a coping action! Screw the working world! Sloth and gluttony have become my life and I LIKE IT!

I’m at the “once a week at the office” stage. Less dealing with traffic, but also a lot more plugging/unplugging of laptop cables.

I know several people who decided to retire during lockdown. I loved being home but, to be honest, my inclination to complete sloth makes unemployment bad for my brain.

Why is sloth a sin? what did he do?

Being retired after you’ve been properly trained to operate in the old society model is hard.
You spend days doing nothing and feel guilty about it when you fail to remind yourself you’ve earned your indolence license after putting in your 30 to 40 years of working and not blowing your earnings on “the hunt for good times”.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
