Read Germaine Greer's article in the Guardian on women and leisure.
I remember teasing my mom often that after dad went to office and we went to school, she would probably have a long nap. Coz, what would she do all day? Surely, there couldnt be so much work?!
Mom would smile and say, "Wait, you'll know."
I know now. Though I am not the type of women that Greer talks about who try to clean an already-clean house or who cook a three-course meal, just doing the bare basics around the house and managing office work seems to take up all of my time during weekdays.
That's why Sunday is my dont-even-lift-a-finger day (provided the maid too doesnt think alike, of course).
But havent most of us forgotten the art of leisure? Or is it just women?
