It’s called work

I was chatting with a friend recently, and we were both lamenting the work we needed to get done that evening. She works for a large company, I work for myself.

She said that she didn’t feel like doing anything, and I shared that I felt similarly. Some time later, as I was preparing to begin the work that had been discussed, she asked me what I was doing.

Me: “Going to work.”

Her: “But I thought you said you didn’t feel like working!”

Me: “That doesn’t mean I’m not going to do it.”
