Time out

I know I'm an old fart, but I still remember Christmas breaks, and I'm pretty sure vegging out was at the top of the list. As a matter of fact it was the list:

MUNCIE -- School might be out for a spell, but that doesn't mean children should spend it vegging out in front of the TV, computer or video games. Those things are OK on a limited basis, but the next few weeks should be spent doing activities that are both physically and mentally stimulating.

Look, a week or two is a "limited basis," OK? Summer vacation, that was a different story. Even the most aggressive "resters" among us ended up going outside and actually doing something after, oh, about a month and a half.

C'mon Leo...I'm sure the little entrepreneur in you once loved to stash some cash by shovelling sidewalks...LOL.

I can tell 'ya from experience...a few blocks of ROWHOMES in Philly, and you were both tired...AND "wealthy" for the holidays...!
And we blew it all...

Here's to long, lazy naps over the Christmas break. We would do well to learn from cats, who luxuriously sleep for 18 hours a day.
