Ticking away the moments that make up a dull dayFritter and waste the hours in an off-hand wayKicking around on a piece of ground in your home townWaiting for someone or something to show you the way
Tired of lying in the sunshine, staying home to watch the rainYou are young and life is long, and there is time to kill todayThen one day you find ten years have got behind youNo-one told you when to run, you have missed the starting gun
And you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinkingRacing around to come up behind you againThe sun is the same in a relative way, but you're olderShorter of breath, and one day closer to death
Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the timePlans that neither come to naught, or half a page of scribbled linesHanging on in quiet desperation is the English wayThe time has come, the song is over, I thought I'd something more to say...
Home, home againI like to be here when I canWhen I come home cold and tiredI like to warm my bones besides the fire
Far way across the field, the tolling of the iron bellCalls the faithful to their knees, to hear the softly spoken magic spell
-Pink Floyd, Time
And remember, it's later now than it's ever been before.
You're a real piece of work, Scott. How did you manage to make such a philosophical thing as "time" so funny? First panel already kills me, then panel 3 delivers the final blow.
I've no time for time ....
Thanks MortallyWounded and Matt - I needed that.
Further reminders that I'm one more day nearer the grave and still have never done anything with my life except comment on comic strips on my laptop.
Time well spent. (contented sigh)
Looks like Missy is a follower of Leibniz, who expounded "the order of successions", or a relation between things that follow one another. So Scott, before you can have that ice cold brewski, you're gonna have to get that lawn mowed.
ah, those folded arms. it looks like Scott's just one poorly chosen dialogue balloon away from the dreaded fists-on-hips.
I'm finding it funny that someone had the time to post the lyrics to a song about time. I've also got to forward this to my boss.
I was expecting Missy to say, "After you get done doing the things I need you to do." That's how the conversation would have gone at our house, lol.
Great. I have had Scott Adams following me around at work to document my life, and now I find out that Scott Meyer is, too.
Time? This is no time to argue about time; we don't have the time.
here's how I save time when I do ab excersizes. Lay on the floor, hands behind head and take a nap. It works great.Also, ignore other people's opinions, that is so exhausting.
Panel 1 = Mind blown.
Sometimes, the greatest timesaver is more work; specificly, the work of searching for a new job in a company that's better managed.
You're a real piece of work, Scott. How did you manage to make such a philosophical thing as "time" so funny?
"So, my first priority is to figure out my first priority?""Do that, and the rest will fall into place"
Wise words from the mullet-haired boss there.
