It’s Goof Off Day
Dilly-dally, fiddle around, lollygag, slack off, diddle-daddle. What do all these words and phrases have in common? They all mean to avoid work. And that’s what I’m doing. Why shouldn’t I? Today’s National Goof Off Day!
I’m goofing off right now. Instead of writing a witty, intelligent blog, I’m lollygagging. That’s right – lollygagging. I could be sharing some great new picture books I found, or writing about creative learning activities to go along with those picture books, or interviewing and up and coming author, or suggesting new ways to come up with “out of the box” book ideas.
Yeah, I could be doing all of that stuff, but I’m not. This is my school vacation week. I deserve to shirk my duties. I can’t be on top of my game all the time. So now I’m at the bottom of my game with all the other dawdlers, deciding what not to do next.
I don’t want to tell anyone else what to do – especially to take it easy today. Do what you want to do, but if you don’t take advantage of this day in some way or another, you really are a goof off!
