clocking it

Do I waste time? Who the hell doesn't? I mean, wasting time is something every person needs to do once in a while. My one sister said to me the other day "shit Bob, who the hell cares if I want to stay in my room all day and sleep?" When I thought about it, I was like, yeah, I mean, I guess if you did what you needed to do, went to work, ate, showered, cleaned yourself, and then woke up on your day off and wanted to do nothing...that's every person's God-given right. I've found myself spending 1, 2 or 24 hours in a blob-like, hibernating state.......I know every guy who sees this will understand, but I always girls like to be totally lazy on their days off?

My one sister always seems to want to give the appearance that doing something makes it seem like you're really getting somewhere in life, but shit, I'd have no problem sitting down on some beach chair off the coast of Mexico, Spain or actually...come to think of it...Ibiza....sipping a Corona with my 12 closest friends, a beautiful baby, and a great pair of worn jeans and Reef flip-flops.......Do I have to be rich to achieve that? Maybe. Maybe not......

I guess for now I'll take the Jersey shore, dark water that obscures my feet, my pop pop's can in the sand and a few cold miller lites from the local 6-pack store. What says class like a miller lite?

While that time might not cost's worth so much more than money could buy.


I read a story that really touched me today. This was the quote at the end of it. From Emily Dickinson's Chariot.....I hope they find the person that did you wrong Billey Joe Johnson

Because I could not stop for Death,
He kindly stopped for me …
