What does Jonathan have to say?



View from the Crib

The other day my mom and dad took me to the doctor’s office for my two week check up.  So far it’s all systems go!  While we were waiting to go into see the doctor I noticed the latest copy of the Journal of Economic Psychology was out.  I know you don’t think a two week old baby is doing much reading, but one article caught my eye.  It was a study called “Just a Perfect Day: Developing a Happiness Optimized Day Schedule."
 
I may only be two weeks old, but I’m interested in achieving the perfect day.  The study surveyed 900 women and asked them how they would break down a perfect day.   Here’s what they came up with:
  • Intimate relations: 106 minutes
  • Socializing with friends: 82 minutes
  • Relaxing: 78 minutes
  • Prayer/meditation: 73 minutes
  • Eating: 75 minutes
  • Exercising: 68 minutes
  • Watching TV: 68 minutes
  • Shopping: 56 minutes
  • Cooking: 50 minutes
  • Talking in the phone: 57 minutes
  • Computer/Email/Internet: 48 minutes
  • Housework: 47 minutes
  • Napping: 46 minutes
  • Childcare: 46 minutes
  • Working: 36 minutes
  • Commuting: 33 minutes
I like some of their answers, but all these women are making life too complicated. 

33 minutes for commuting?!  My commute is from the crib to the changing table and that only takes about 60 seconds. 

36 minutes for work?!  I guess I work at leaving a surprise in my diaper for my parents, but that only takes about 2 minutes.

48 minutes on the computer?!  I’m not so sure that’s necessary.  I find starring off in the distance much more entertaining.

47 minutes of housework?  Please!  That’s why I have those two servants named mom and dad.

50 minutes of cooking?  Has anyone ever heard of breast milk?  It’s instantly ready and quite filling.

I’d write more, but I like to stick to my schedule which includes plenty of time for naps. 
Gotta go.
