“Procrastination is something I’ve always wanted to try,” said Barry “Buzz” Abernathy, 37, from Newbury.
“Everyone I know is doing it so there must be something in it. In fact, it’s on my bucket list but I just keep putting off doing it.”
“One of my friends, Gerry, gets absolutely nothing done and he loves it. I’m far too busy with ‘stuff’ to procrastinate seriously.”
In the past six months, Buzz has built an extension to his house, started a new tech company and won three Gold medals for skiing. He works out at the gym five days a week, gives his young son football lessons and he still found time to father another child.
Buzz’s friend Gerry said: “He doesn’t do much with the rest of us. If we ask him to go for a drink, we usually end up staying in and he’s at the pub on his own.
“Although the last time, apparently, he sold the manager a new retail Point Of Sale system and he won fifty quid on the slots. We just couldn’t be arsed.”
We pointed out to Buzz that as he had been putting off procrastinating he had actually been procrastinating.
“Gosh!” he said. “I never thought of it like that. I guess I have. So I can tick that off my bucket list.
“I’ll do it later.”
