A Break From Work

Right What You No: A Break From Work

A Break From Work


I'm going on holiday for a little while, and as such I am unlikely to post.

What? Don't you find blogging to friends and comrades fun?

Well of course. But, you see, I have a simple holiday rule that I think makes relaxation better.

Holiday Rule: Only do things that can be done whilst horizontal.

That's right, unless I can be laying down during the activity then it can be crossed off the to-do list while on holiday. Internet is mostly a sitting activity, thus the likelihood of being able to view the internet, let alone post, will be limited. I'm sure that if I prop my laptop in the right position and find the correct cushion I could use the internet, but it even sounds uncomfortable to me.

Activities that could be done on holiday:
Sleeping - the King of prone activities.
Reading - rather obvious really.
Eating - have to keep the energy levels up.
Drinking - fluids are important for that fuzzy feeling around noon.
Writing - Truman Capote preferred writing whilst prone.
Bench press - not really exercise if you are laying down.
Sex - much easier laying down.
Guitar playing - it's still practice, even if you fall asleep, as long as you are still holding the guitar.
Playing fetch with the dog - our little bundle of energy wouldn't let us lay down for long if she doesn't get to play fetch!

Activities that are definitely ruled out on holiday:
Anything that could be accidentally construed as work - this includes reading non-fiction, sorry.
Running - far too active.
Squatting - loading a barbell with double bodyweight is too much like hard work.
Listening to social commentators - I can't stand them, they are usually wrong.
Adopting a stance on anything - mainly pun related.

Sounds like a plan to me! Everyone needs some time off. You've deserved it, I'm sure! Enjoy! Are you going anywhere special?

Thanks April. I feel like I deserve the break and my leave entitlements seem to suggest I spend too much time at the day job.

We were headed to a nice place by the beach that allows dogs. Its where we spent our honeymoon and has a great second-hand bookstore nearby. All in the heart of winery country!

Running's not work!

Hope you're enjoying the week off. Don't get sick for half of it like my wife just did.

Hope you're enjoying your holiday. Is swimming considered a horizontal activity? Seems to me it usually is, unless you get tossed about by a wave.

Emerson:Yyou're just saying running isn't work, I've seen your Google Maps of your runs. HARD WORK!

Garner: You haven't seen me swim. I do a great brick impersonation.

Have a great holiday, man! I'll probably end up using "Hey baby, want to go on a horizontal holiday?" at some point, just so you know.
