Or it could also be the other way around. I actually wrote a song called “The 5 to 9 Blues” about working part-time when I was in retail back in the 80s. Anyone who has ever worked an evening shift at a lazy mall department store on a night when no one is out shopping can relate. It’s boooooring.
But actually in these times, we can find the downtime we need to be creating. I once heard someone say unloading trucks or doing some other menial work allows your mind the freedom to wander on its own. I have to agree.
