Using What One Has
After a slow business week caused by the distractions of hunger pangs and BorgHealth probing I was all intent on jumping back into work today. But the weather is beautiful, the stomach is still queasy, there are no deadlines immediately imminent, and damnit, I can procrastinate. It’s a skill I’m proud of. Besides, I think my favorite pair of boxers have been lost to the caustic bleaching of barium farts. A reasonable period of mourning must take place.
There are few advantages to self-employment. They certainly don’t include regular paychecks or access to pilferable office supplies. The ability to manipulate time and space by pushing work into that space on the side of the desk and saying ‘I’ll do that next week’ is about all I’ve got. One must use the powers one has.
