International Goof Off Day

Yesterday was quite hectic and busy for me.  There were several appointments, a couple of household emergencies, and a city council meeting to attend in the evening.  I feel justified in observing International Goof Off Day.goofoff-01

I don’t know why I need to justify goofing off, maybe some lingering guilt trip, or something. I wonder if the people who designated and organized International Goof Off Day also felt the need to lend credence to their desire to goof off, too.  I suppose there are always going to be people who need to organize everything. Why else should we have a specific calendar date, set aside to mess around?

Can you visualize their dayplanner entries for today?
7:00AM: breakfast
8:00AM: doodle on scratch paper
9:00AM: play several games of solitaire on the computer
10:00AM enjoy the coloring book

My own agenda has been cleared out.  I did that yesterday, so I wouldn’t have to be bothered with that task today.  When a person feels the need to justify goofing off, one simply plans ahead.goofoff-02

I just like to observe International Goof Off Day with a blank schedule.  I prefer free-style goofing off, it just seems more true to the spirit of the event.

What about mealtimes, today?  I’ve got that covered. I prepared them ahead of time. Just pop them into the microwave whenever hunger arises.

I’ve taken care of nearly every thing ahead of time for today.  Even this blog post was written and posted before today. This is the day I leave nearly everything to chance.

Well, that’s enough for today.  I feel the urge to check Facebook.
