Sorry boss, if it looks like the crew’s a bit sluggish, it’s National Lazy Day, and we’re observing it.
We’d celebrate, but that sounds too much like work.
If ever there was a day to feel good about napping, this is it.
As might be expected, the origin of National Lazy Day is unknown — perhaps the originator was too tired to document it?
If you’re like many of us, you shouldn’t need tips on how to observe the day — by the pool, on the couch, in a hammock, at a spa, on the beach, in a bar.
To give you a little visual encouragement in the endeavor, we offer the much maligned yet venerable sloth — which is actually a decent swimmer, it turns out.
As for the (in)activity associated with it, a colleague suggests you can dismiss that business about “sloth” being one of the seven deadly sins.
“I just don’t buy that,” she said. “I don’t think it rises to that level.”
