Work. Not.



willowy
old
retiree
kicks away
early hours and
repulsive boss
smiles often

Actually, this could happen. A person could give up honest labor to post one blog a day and write a novel. In fact, both these events could occur in November. Makes one yearn for a repulsive boss and earlier hours.

Good luck to all NaBloPoMo and NaNoWriMo participants. May your pens stay at the ready and may your papers not blow away.

When the worker is the boss two things must be added that once subtracted. Smiles and sneers. btw, I always enjoy your contributions.

This has the compressed immediacy of newspaper headlines. Very effective.
