Alfredo the Procrastination Faerie

He perches on my shoulder and whispers.

Sometimes he wraps his legs around my hair and plays the electric guitar that is my earring.

When he’s done, he leans in and tells me all his naughty secrets.

He nags about other tasks that need doing. Other novels I could be writing. Books I want to read. Updated blog posts to comment on. Friends to talk to. Television to watch.

When you see people daydreaming on television shows - and they slap themselves to ‘Snap out of it!’ - they are really just executing the "Alfredo Swat."

All those times when you are procrastinating, just know that you're not alone.

Alfredo is watching you.
