My First Week of Semi-Employment

Filed under: Humor — missedmanners @ 12:41 am

I love that term.

Actually, I’m loving a lot of stuff right now.

Here’s what I’ve learned in my first week of semi-employment:

  • Hangovers cease to exist when you can sleep later than 8 AM.
  • The only meal I like to cook, breakfast, is fun to make. I actually went grocery shopping for the first time in seven years yesterday.
  • My neighborhood looks completely different during the day. There are stores open, fruit stands and clothing shops. People are out and about, chatting and being happy. I actually strolled the other day, it was amazing.
  • Having nearly unlimited amount of time at your disposal actually forces one not to be lazy.
  • I enjoy doing household tasks naked. Cooking bacon has proven dangerous.
  • I smile a lot now.

Things like that.


  1. cooking bacon with no shirt is nearly fatal. and i totally agree dude, you enjoy life so much more when you have absolutely nowhere to be. you do things at your own pace, everything becomes enjoyable

  2. I have to say, the part about cooking bacon being dangerous made this blog post 100% more enjoyable. Especially because it is true.

  3. So how’s the not being lazy thing going? If your non-posting is any indication, i’d have to assume “not well”.
