Get Cracking


This morning  I read an article about procrastinators not being lazy people. Quite the opposite, according to some experts of human behavior. That’s good to now. Procrastination, I know it well. Today, for instance, I didn’t get around to writing what I planned to share with this week’s Thursday 13, but I did sew a pocket on a putter-around-the-house shirt, as well as turn its long sleeves into short ones. That, according to those experts is a common ploy with procrastinators, to distract oneself with a different task or project. 

Here are 13 synonyms for procrastinate from Merriam-Webster:

dawdle
poke
plod
shilly-shally 
fool around
delay
slow up
mope
dilly dally
tarry
loll
decelerate
filibuster

That last synonym was a surprise. The shoe does fit for a certain party in the Senate. Okay, off to Thursday 13 I go to check out more lists of 13. Come join me.

  1. I thought about dilly-dallying in my response, but shuffled my fingers across the keyboard to create a reply. Great list!
