Five-Hundred Word Challenge 373: Ill Day

So I’ve been sitting down at my desk at home all day as I’ve been a bit ill and I’m thinking about how much I could have gotten done today and yet I probably would not have done much had I done anything else other than sit here, watch stuff and play a few games.

Thems the brakes, as they say. In this case, is that what they say? I don’t know at the current moment of existence.

Relaxing has not been too bad a thing, although I do wish I was doing it not due to feeling ill and being in a bit of pain. Still, I will survive. Always do, sometimes.

I wonder if there was a situation in which relaxing would be completely detrimental to my ability to do the things that I do.

I probably should go outside at some point. I can’t sit here forever, after all.

I could go for a walk and see how I hold up.

I could do that. It is probably a good idea for something for me to pursue.

If the breeze picks up enough, then I likely will go outside at some point today.

Even if it does not, then I shall still go outside, for there is reason for me to venture outside my bedroom and outside of the house and it is that reason that shall get me outside and doing things in order to progress through a bit more of life and become some sort of better person.

Eventually I will advance to a higher level with all of the experience that I would gain and therefore evolve into something else. Probably middle age. It’s a pretty sweet evolution where you get to whinge about how young people need to stop whinging as the situation that is bad is not actually bad and that they need to work harder and shut up as getting something isn’t hard whilst at the same time completely ignoring the massive benefits and opportunities you got handed to you.

Well, that’s one evolution. The other one is not so sweet. The other one allows you to have a realistic view of the world  and the situations that everyone goes through. I’d rather have my head in the sand, thank you very much.

Of course, this will take a lot of going outside and doing things, but there’s a lot of water to cross before there can be any announcement of a path for which I would traverse in my very life of merriment and joyful lack of joy.

And even before that, there is more work to be done, such as the wearing of the pants and the accepting of the consequences of my being ill, such as the repeated understanding that I need to take better care of myself if I want to make sure that I stay on top of things.

Well, that and a… no, I need to take better care of myself at this point.

Not sure as to what I was doing here.

I think I was trying to express my being ill and did an okay job.

I think.

Written at home.
