The Story of the Lazy Gnome.

a drawing of Galagasco the lazy gnome.

Once there was a wee little gnome named Galagasco. Now, if you had to choose just one word to describe him you would probably use the word 'lazy'. And if you did you'd be right. The thing about lazy folk is that they usually end up with lots and lots of things to do that never gets done. This was also true in the case of Galagasco. One day it got so bad that he decided it was time to do something about it. Many lazy folk make this decision, but he went a step further than most of them...He actually did something. He made a list. At first he titled it 'Things To Do Today', but since it was already afternoon he decided to change it to 'Things To Do Tomorrow'. And credit given where credit is due, he did write down quite a lot of things to do. It took some time, but it was a good list and he was rather proud of it. When he was done he read through it once more and thought that with so many things to do tomorrow, he should probably spend the rest of today resting.

He folded up the list and placed it on the wee table next to his bed where he snuggled up and found his way to dreamland in no time. He slept like a log and woke up well rested the next morning. "What a lovely day" he thought as he got out of bed, until he remembered about the list and all those things that needed to be done. His heart sank into his little boots. He sighed as he picked up the list, but as he began to read, a smile appeared on his face. He re-read it few more times, just to be sure and gave another big sigh, only this time it was a sigh of relief. "I was a little worried for a while" he said to himself, "but there was no need, for this is a list of things to do tomorrow...not today". He folded up the list and put it back onto the wee table next to his bed. "And since I have so many things to do tomorrow" he thought aloud, "I should probably spend the rest of today resting". and got back into bed.
