I don’t like work. I haven’t liked work for a long time. Well, ever, really. It’s a horrible waste of time which keeps me from far more productive activities (productive in the sense of everything else but money) such as sleeping, resting, writing, more sleeping, reading, patting my dogs, looking at birds, lying down, and sex, followed by more lying down.
In my journey through life, I’ve gathered that lots of other people share this dislike of work. So, you know, how do we STOP it? Well, I have a cunning plan.
Everybody who doesn’t want to go to work, gives everybody else who doesn’t want to go to work, enough money to live on so that NONE of us have to go to work!
In other words, a sort of pyramid or ponzi scheme, only more oblong than pyramidal, come to think of it. Hmmm. Maybe not.
Ok, here’s another idea. How about everybody who DOES want to work, gives money to those of us who don’t want to work. This will achieve several useful results. Firstly, the people who DO want to work will get to do our various jobs (which will make the industrious among us, who are not gainfully employed, very pleased). What’s more, they’ll enjoy them, which is more than we do.
Secondly, those of us who don’t want to work will instead hang around producing things of great beauty to edify the rest of the population (in exchange for their work). Sometimes these things will be very simple – for instance, the naive but touching pleasure that my boyfriend will get from seeing how angelic I look while I’m sleeping. Sometimes, more universal in nature, like, well, blog posts, random but deeply insightful thoughts, aimless scribbles, doodles, cheerful little songs, that kind of thing.
Thirdly, dogs and cats everywhere will be happy and loved up.
