day no. 14,027: employee of the month

Proverbs 31:27
She looks well to the ways of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.

Laziness is rarely observed as a desire to abstain from doing, but is rather seen as a ravenous preference for consuming idleness. It's not usually hours wasted on a couch doing nothing, but hours spent in the active atrophy of Facebook. 

A good woman does not eat the bread of idleness, but she dies if she doesn't eat anything. It's not the eating that is the problem, but the nutritive value of what is feeding her soul. She is homeward-oriented and looks well to the ways that make the four walls and roof of her particular kingdom a haven. Her home is her employer and she is employee of the month.
