Mulligan is that great golf term, used when a shot is not counted against the score. It is permitted in unofficial play to a player whose previous shot was poor. Like a do-over.
Well I would like a Mulligan of my last two days off. There is so much nothing to do, two days just isn’t long enough to do it all. I have accomplished as little as humanly possible without actually forgetting to breathe. And thus procrastination has been taken to a whole new level, because I don’t even know what things I should be doing that I am so determinedly avoiding.
There was some vague plan in my head to play so much Candy Crush that I would get sick of it and stop for a while. So far, this has not worked.
I played around on an Instagram app and made these two collaborative pictures.
I drank a lot of coffee. I did some grocery shopping. I read some books. I slept late and went to bed early. I read every single inspirational thing on Facebook. And some things that were not at all stimulating or helpful or moving but I read them anyway. Because they were there.
Eventually I sat down and wrote this post about it all. I don’t know about you, but I am now completely worn out and done reliving it and ready for bed. Never mind the Mulligan – I would probably do the same non-things all over again anyway.
I have the expertise, if anyone needs guidance on whiling away time and goofing off. If you forget to call, I’ll understand.
