- "Don't work so hard."
- "You look stressed. I'm sure you'd feel better if you took a break and got some exercise by shoveling the snow in the driveway."
- *yells from the other room* "I'm naked!" (Yup, this is wishful thinking; sadly, spouses/partners are rarely long-term procrastiknaves.)
Most frequently, we ourselves act as our own personal procrastiknaves. These little buggers live inside the right hemisphere of the human brain, aka the side stimulated by things that sparkle or a really good song or even an appalling rerun of Toddlers & Tiaras. Yup, I suspect the entire internet was created by procrastiknaves. My inner procrastiknave has kept me busy ALL afternoon making wordfuses, watching MadTV and playing with one of these.
*One might refer to those who do not realize they are being manipulated by a procrastiknave as "procrastinaive."
