I work from home. Work has several definitions. Let’s explore them!
In addition to exerting effort to accomplish something such as clean dishes, dinner, and folded laundry (lest anyone accuse me of not acknowledging the work of homemakers), I also perform labor as a means of earning my livelihood from my house. My house is where I live and it is also my place of employment, which is annoying and frustrating as well as awesome. From my house, I have written applications for habeas corpus relief, petitions to the Supreme Court, and gotten people out of deportation proceedings. So just because I wear pajamas to work rather than a suit and tie, don’t you dare ask me “are you working now?” or “so, are you practicing law?” or anything similar. Got it?
Now excuse me while I play solitaire and watch Breaking Bad while the boss isn’t looking.
