Write four lines of prose about something (or someone) that is: shortsighted.
Worked the evening shift at the community centre tonight, 4:30 to 9. At 7:30 there was no one else in the building and I started dreaming of locking up at 8:30 and being home by 8:45. I even passed some time shooting hoops in the gym.
Then one guy showed up to use the weight room at 7:50.
I had to kick him out at 8:45 but by that point I'd already done everything but lock up the weight room and turn off the lights in the gym, so I was still home by 9. Which begins to make up for all those times I stayed until 9:15 or 9:30 when I was first learning the job.
Anyway. Looking forward to a day off with family tomorrow.
"And there we go, I've finally brought us back under budget - all I had to do was fire all of my military advisors."
"You did WHAT?!"
"Useless bunch of idiots, all of them... plus I'm not going to declare war on anyone ever again."
"But, sir... what if someone declares war on us?"
