So, I’m unfortunately still spending a lot of time flat on my back in bed because of pressure and aches in my neck etc when I sit up. I’ve been sitting up pretty steadily since about 5:30pm though and I’m mightly craving a lie down but it’s easier to type when I’m stitting up – so I’ve brought the ipad to bed with me to type this out hah!
I kinda feel like I’ve been the embodiment of Sloth this week with spending all the time I have in bed…despite the fact that it’s for a ‘good reason’ lol. Anyways, on with our last Sloth post of the week – I would like to think that Belphegor would approve of the lack of Sloth posts.
“Clean your room!” her mother screamed at her. She made a half hearted attempt to do so before lying down again.
“Do the dishes, take out the trash, do your chores you lazy ass!” the words never stopped and all she really wanted to do was lie there. She didn’t sleep necessarily. She just would lie there and think, or not think, or let her mind wander. Sometimes she’d stumble upon something that could almost be considered artsy or creative, and she’d get an inkling to get up and write it down…
But she never did.
Once she moved out on her own, she was forced to finally get out of bed and actually get a job – after all, the bills wouldn’t pay themselves! But she wouldn’t go out with her workmates, and she never went out and tried to meet people. That was just too much effort, and it was far more comfortable to lay on her bed, her tv going or a book in her hand, and do nothing.
Thankfully, she was blessed with beautiful genetics, or the minions of hell would be fighting over who got her first – Gluttony or Sloth.
One morning, she didn’t turn up for work, and didn’t call in. No one thought much. But the second and third day, they started to worry. Eventually, the police were forced to check on her.
She lay curled up in her bed, almost in a nest. Her eyes were closed peacefully, almost like she were just sleeping away.
Unfortunately, her soul had already departed the land and was entertaining itself in Belphegor’s snake pit.
