Another new word is squeezed out from the grumbling backside of the hedgehog. It’s not rude although phonetically it could be. But in the same way that ‘Stiction’ is a clever coming together of Sticky and Friction, Strapathy combines Strategy and Apathy to describe an approach to life of not doing much at all.
Not the case with work unfortunately, but my riding motivation has ground to the kind of halt that can only be shifted by explosives. Post Scotland, I’ve found many and varied better things to do including looking out of the window at the rain, sitting in front of the computer while it’s raining, and watching the talking heads on TV discussing the flooding. I believe my lack of interest may be linked to the fact that, only this morning, I was strolling on the banks of Lake Tallet. A vast expanse of water created in our garden/car park by four solid days or torrential downpours.
But it’s more that that, I really can’t be arsed at all. And that’s a bit of a worry as at no point in the last six years have I missed three consecutive weeks of riding. Until September 2008, and unless I can drag m sorry butt out this evening, it’s hard to see where that’ll end. Summer 2009 maybe? Depends if we have one.
Even that was only slightly more interesting than surfing for “Labrador sleeping pills“. Apathy is Strategy, you know it makes sense.
