Me Time

Filed under: Humor — missedmanners @ 11:50 pm

Every year, after our events, my boss takes a day or two just to be out of the office and out of contact. Until this year I always thought it a little irresponsible.

Though now with all of my extra responsibilities and heavier work load, I’ve copied his behavior and have done the same. Today I took a me day.

I didn’t call anyone back, didn’t check my email, didn’t really move past the confines of a two block radius and just stewed in my solitary lazy juice all day.

It was deeply satisfying. Not the being lazy thing. I take being lazy to a level of unheard of artisanship.
But rather, the alone-ness of it all.

I know some people who can’t be alone for long periods of time. I’m the exact opposite. I love being alone. Reading, watching TV, playing video games, sitting and staring at the sky. These are things best done alone, and quietly. Sometimes I feel that if I don’t get my Me Time, the thoughts I generate being around other people will get into a giant brain brawl with my regular thoughts and I’ll have to be put down like that poor horse from the Derby.

Only I’d make some really crazy glue.

Nyuck, Nyuck.



  1. oh dude i’m totally with you on that. The whole alone-ness thing is completely under appreciated. take for example my situation. my wife just started her maternity leave 2 and a half months early…………my alone time has been destroyed. methinks i need to ship her somewhere so i can spend a day or two playing videogames and drinking beer like my liver just insulted me.

    some people just can’t understand why types like us need to be alone so badly. I can’t explain it, in the same way I can’t explain my desire to frantically copulate with as many women as possible. It just grounds me.

    oh and btw, i never did properly thank you for the mention a while back. it meant alot.

  2. you and i are kindred spirits. i enjoy being solitary and without taking the necessary and precautionary “me” breaks, I can become a real she dog, though i’m really good at doing it nicely so you don’t even know i’m insulting you. Now THAT takes some skill! *giggle*
