One nice thing about being unemployed is that you don't need to worry about telling people or making excuses when you get sick. It is likely that I played the part of the "host" to communal sicknesses when I walked around shaking hands in the freezing rain selling coupons. Now we have a houseful of sniffleheads.
And somehow, despite being unemployed, I have worn a dress shirt and tie practically every day this week. There's something wrong here. I'm not playing the role of "slacker" very well. Jerry Seinfeld was right. It is very hard to do "nothing." The temptation to do something is overwhelming.
