8-Minute Memoir

Day 140: Bad things that happen when you’re lazy

July 5, 2017

Day 140: Bad things that happen when you’re lazy. This is a delicious bag of Haribo gummy peaches covered in decadent dark chocolate. I bought these treats during a trip on a whim, thinking I could share them with my kids or eat them alone locked in my room (I never do that). When I got home from the trip, instead of unloading my things from the car, I went inside and lay on my bed and stared at the ceiling. This went on for around 24 hours. When I finally unpacked, the chocolate had turned into a puddle of sadness all over my giant blob of delicious useless fake peaches. This is one example of the consequences of my laziness. There are many. Things left out in the yard during storms. Food expiring on the counter. Laundry rotting in the washer. Last minute writing fury. Entire basement covered in soot (that’s a long story. Actually it’s a short one). It doesn’t happen all the time but it does happen. Write about being lazy, the rewards and the consequences. If this would never ever happen to you and you’re a little bit disgusted, write about that. 8 minutes. #8minutememoir
