LazyTown? I call bulls***

I have two children, ages 6 & 4. I’m not going to lie: they’re a handful. But they’re mine and I love them. They watch appropriate kids’ shows on TV. One of these is LazyTown and it’s on the Sprout network. In brief, the show is about a girl that lives in the fictional hamlet of LazyTown. You know the deal. She goes on adventures, gets into trouble, gets out of trouble, etc.

Again, the show is called LazyTown. But there’s nothing lazy about it. Honestly, I get exhausted just watching it. The action never stops. They sing, dance, become pirates, ride rocket ships, and on and on. There’s no sleeping, no resting, nothing that would come close to being described as lazy.

This isn’t a rant about what I consider to be an egregious misnaming of a kids’ television show. Well, the first part of the post is. (Note to self: Sean, get a life!!)

But I digress.

Laziness is one of those culprits that can ruin an organization. And it’s not a fast-moving killer. Indeed the very nature of laziness is lethargic, snail’s pace, and glacier-like withering of progress. And it’s extremely contagious!
