Missing Letter Monday No “G” – I Need 40 Hour Days!

Published February 19, 2018 by Iphis of Scyros

I would really like to improve the quality of what I write on here.  Whenever I look back on what I wrote in the first year or so, I shudder to think how much worse what I produce currently is.  (Ack, that was a tortured sentence…)

I need to return to myths and ancient cultures, I think.  That was what produced most of my best work, and it’s a subject I can easily wax…well, not exactly “eloquent” or even “deep” but certainly one in which I can be quite verbose.

Which returns me to the title of this post.  My life would be so much better if there were 40 or so hours in every day.  Then I’d have time to work, spend time to meet the demands of others (esp. my family), have some time to waste on entertainment products, and still have time to actually accomplish personal tasks like this.  It could even be possible that I’d be able to have a proper amount of sleep!  (I usually don’t turn in until around 12:00, and then rise at about 7:00…which now that I say it out loud is totally plenty of sleep and I have zero excuse for always being tired.)

I mean, for example, this A.M., I was unable to write, because it took me so much time to fix the mis-named .mp3s to make up my playlist that I didn’t have any time left over to write before I had to leave for lunch.   Admittedly, my own fault in about five different ways, but the net result is still that I didn’t write even one word.

But if days were 40 hours, then I’d still have tons of time to write today.

On the other hand, if that was the case, it’d be even more time before my new phone could arrive here, and it’s actually rather unsafe to drive around without a cell phone, so…

Well, maybe we can coax them to switch over to 40 hour days after I replace my phone…
