I like your rendering of this proverb, Connie. Laziness during times when we should be industrious can cause a lot of problems for our future. Thanks for entering the contest, and congratulations on your win!

Really the monoku is very good. Almost similar proverb also exists in Bengali ( my mother tongue). All the best.

Both the proverb and your monoku are impressive, Connie; excellent food for thought, unless one is too lazy to bother thinking:) Warm regards // paul

oh I love how you did yours, Connie. One of the better ones I have seen! By the way, I just glanced at my hotmail but in answer to your question to me there, I will have lunch with my friend after school for my birthday. Maybe Joe will take me out too. I hope to see a movie tomorrow as well as on LaborDay, which I have off!!

Lazing away seems foolish to me too, most of the time. However, this weekend may be a laze fest for me. Good luck in the contest, Connie.
