31 Things, Day 18: Lay down

31 things I'd rather be doing right now

I’m two days behind on this 31 day challenge, but there’s a good reason.

Paul Reiser had a stand-up comedy special in 1992 called 3 1/2 Blocks from Home where he went on a tirade of all the things that life bombards you with, and how marketers think they know what we all supposedly want. “You know what we want? We just want to lie down, that’s all!” It was really funny, and I never forgot it. (I’ve searched for it, but I can’t find a YouTube clip of it; you’ll just have to take my word for it, sorry.)

If given the opportunity, I would most certainly rather lay down than move. I’m lazy like that. But lately I’ve been bombarded by a lot of those things that life throws at us, and it seemed much more than usual. So you know what I did this weekend? I lay down.

And it was wonderful. Nothing more to be said.

So that’s another thing I’d rather be doing now, laying down.
