I just overheard someone saying this:
I get lazy when I don’t do anything.
Does that sound weird to you at all, or is it just me? I mean, aren’t you already lazy if you don’t do anything? The definition of “lazy”:
adj. la·z·er, la·zi·est
1. Resistant to work or exertion; disposed to idleness.
2. Slow-moving; sluggish: a lazy river.
3. Conducive to idleness or indolence: a lazy summer day.
Meanwhile, I also know that if you don’t do anything, you are relaxing, but that itself is weird too. I mean, “relaxing” is a verb.
Abbr. V or vb.
* The part of speech that expresses existence, action, or occurrence in most languages.
“Action” is the keyword. So I guess, if you are relaxing you ain’t really doing nothing or anything. Thus, my previous statement that “if you don’t do anything, you are relaxing” is somewhat wrong to an extent to what relaxing is define d as. Knowing this, it proves saying that
“[you] get lazy when [you] don’t do anything”
just doesn’t make sense—just plain pleonastic.
Bottom-line kids, don’t do drugs.
