In an effort to make this here corner of the interwebs a less depressing place I’ve decided to begin participating in the Daily Prompt again. As often as I can, anyhow. They sometimes have some very interesting prompts. Other times it’s, “Why would anyone want to write about that?”
Today, the DP wants to know if I’d keep working if I had bottomless pit full of money. Specifically, they asked:
Would I still work if I didn’t need the money? Allow me to answer that with some imagery.
Why the hell would I work if I DIDN’T need the money? Hell no I wouldn’t work. I HATE having an alarm clock wake me in the morning. I hate my morning commute. My coworkers drive me fucking insane. The account I’m on is so mismanaged that even Snooki would be scratching her head and asking, “Hey, what the hell are you guys doing over there?”
So what would I do with my free time? I’d sleep in. I’d exercise. I’d write. I’d spend more time with my children, niece, and nephews. I’d play video games. I may even do some cleaning around the house. I’d visit far away friends and family. I’D POTTY TRAIN BABY C!
I work because I have to. The strain and drain of the rat race annoys me. Life shouldn’t be centered around our work and careers. It should be centered around our families, friends, and happy memories. Life is meant to be lived, and I don’t feel alive while I’m working.
*Bonus points if you can tell me what movie the title of this post came from.
