Doing nothing

“How do you do Nothing?” asked Pooh.
“Well, it’s when people call out at you just as you’re going off to do it, ‘What are you going to do, Christopher Robin?’ and you say, ‘Oh, nothing’ and then you go and do it. It means just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear, and not bothering.”
— A.A. Milne

I have a very important plan for the rest of this evening. I’m going to do Nothing. I have a whole stack of Something that I ought to be doing, but it’s been a long week, and I’m just not in the mood to do Anything … so instead, I’m going to do Nothing, and then in the morning, I’ll get up and have breakfast at Ollie’s, and maybe after that I’ll do Something. But just now, Nothing seems like a very good thing to do.
