a person who avoids work or effort.
• a person who evades military service.
• a young person (esp. in the 1990s) of a subculture characterized by apathy and aimlessness.
> I DO put effort into the many things that I like to do! However, I do avoid work...... But, the job is a "vehicle" to let me do the things that I like to do. So, I don't avoid it, because in doing so, I wouldn't be able to do the things that I like to do. (It's kind of a cruel and vicious cycle, don't you think?)
> I didn't evade military service. Nor would I if I had been drafted into the service. But alas, I have never served our country in a military fashion. In my later years, I have looked back at this fact with much regret.
> At age 54, am I still considered young? "With apathy, and aimlessness, I will pull on a pair of slacks, so that I can attend the evening dinner functions at the Basin Harbor Club."
[ Rich, don't get upset at Tom and me for hijacking your thread. You already have a duplicate thread going, on the same exact topic in another section of the forum. I will promise not to tamper with that one. And, I ain't no slacker when I make a promise to do something! ]
