Lazy Song

I do not like Bruno Mars. How do I even know this guy's name? Because I listen to bad radio in the mornings when I drive the boys to preschool. I can't help myself. I like the morning show banter. Bruno Mars has a "hit" that the pop stations are playing. I have heard it one too many times- in the mini van, on the way to Berkeley with two boys bickering in the backseat and Ju-Ju Bean wailing at the top of his lungs. It's called "The Lazy Song", and I swear he wrote it just to taunt parents of young children and hard working people everywhere.

A sample of the lyrics:

Today I don't feel like doing anything

I just want to lay in my bed.

Don't feel like picking up my phone, so leave a message at the tone

Because today I swear I'm not doing anything.

Brilliant Mr. Mars, me too! I'm not going to do a darn thing today.... except wait, I might as well wish for a pet unicorn or a money tree in my backyard, because that is how realistic such a scenario is for me. In fact, I can't possibly imagine a day in the next ten years where doing nothing would be a remote option. So thank you Bruno for rubbing it in my face, over and over again. I'll just have to sit here trying to drink one freaking cup of coffee while begging my four week old to hush, and negotiating with my boys for ten minutes of peace and quite.

Must be nice to be you Bruno. Have a nice stinkin' day.


  1. i love doing nothing! it's my favorite past time. of course, the repercussions from doing nothing are rather severe (you can't walk through 2 rooms in my house), but i'm still into it.

  2. They play that damn song ALL THE TIME on the radio here. It taunts me. It sticks its wrinkled little nose in my face. WHICH day do I get to do nothing? WHICH year? I am with you.

    I hear ya sista!

  4. I cannot even remember what that feels like. And even if I have 4 consecutive seconds ... or even hours ... of no kids, I don't know what the eff to do with myself. Do NOTHING? OOooooohhhhh.... riiiiiiiiight. Maybe I'll try that next time :P

  5. I got easily annoyed with the song and then I watched the video. You must watch the video.
