1. a lazy person who stays in bed long after the usual time for arising.

I think it’s ironic that the word of the day a few days ago was indefatigable (incapable of being tired out; not yielding to fatigue; untiring) and I typed this and got tired mid word: “Oh, to be indefatigable! I happen to think fatigue is a tre”

And now I’m choosing to write about slugabed instead.

I do not want to be indefatigable. I love being worn out from a big adventure with Dakota (dog sittee) and then being slugabeds the next morning. Or waking up early, going on a long hike, and then being slugabeds in the afternoon before work while watching Ellen. If I was indefatigable, I wouldn’t enjoy the weight of the down comforter like I do at 9am, when I roll over once more. I wouldn’t enjoy the awakening process full of microwaving my coffee over and over to keep it the right temperature as we plan our day together.

I do realize I have been talking about Dakota like she’s a person. If I knew a person that I wanted to be around as much as I do with this pup, I’d be married. That’s a weird thing to say I guess. She is so positive and thoughtful and she makes me laugh. I want her to have the best days possible. I think it’s love.

And let’s face it, is there anything cuter than this slugabed?
