Fun meets its match

The relationship between the variables Fun and Responsibility can be defined as follows:

f = 1 / r

Or in lay terms, Fun (f) is inversely proportional to Responsibility (r).

The more responsibility you have on your shoulders, the less fun you become.

If you’re an รผber Fun person, you’re not in the least bit responsible.

If you find you’ve struck the magic proportions in the mortar of your personality, consider your self lucky. Fun and Responsibility most certainly don’t go hand in hand.

That’s why parents forbid their children from having fun. Hanging out and chilling with your mates is way too much fun. You’re ignoring your responsibilities. If you’ve tried to have fun responsibly, you’ll know what I mean. If you’re having fun, you’re somehow ignoring a level of responsibility you’re meant to be upholding.

A responsible person cannot be fun.

I’m no fun.

    In my family we live way too long. My grandmother was 103 when she passed on. So instead of saying life is to short……I say life is too long to not be happy and have fun. I am a super-responsible person who absolutely insists on having fun. If anyone doesn’t like that I throw fun into my responsible life, to them I say “f**k you in the neck with a butterknife”! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Sandra knows what she’s talking about Maryam! Besides, I think the more you obsess over whether you’re having enough fun, the less fun you’re likely to have. Find some way to remind yourself that you’re a person under all those responsibilities. I’ve heard rumours that some people use blogs to vent their frustration and they end up feeling better afterwards ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. true. But then again, if not having any fun causes a nervous breakdown, then isn’t it irresponsible to not have a little fun? Or is that like dividing by zero and screw up the whole equation?

  4. awww

    you have to just give in to the irreverant, fun, irresponsible woman within once in a while…

    you know she’s there, just peeking, waiting, holding her breath…

    just let her out.

    you will be surprised at the heights she will take you to:)

  5. I’ve seen your fun side. Sure its constrained within the walls of responsibilty, but its there. ๐Ÿ˜›

    Ok I’m going to be nice *single, vibrating strum of a violin*

    ..Maryam honestly I have never not had fun with you. Sure you don’t get on the table and start shaking that thang (I think it would bother me alot if you did.) but your a fun gal. So Maryam fans don’t listen to this girl she’s just as expressive and funny and intelligent in real life as she is in blog life.

    Does this mean your not as responsible as you think you are?? hmm hmm.

    Having said all this, I think you’ve got the Science of Responsibity versus Fun down pat. The art I think would be to find that thin line where Responsibility is not a Burden and balance on that. maybe then we’ll be able to have fun and be responsible at the same time instead of going from one extreme to the other like we’re manic?

    Ok thats all the philosophy i’m capable of at this moment. *hug*

  6. von: my idea of fun is raucous ๐Ÿ™‚

    sandra: hahaha now that’s one way of dealing with it. love the subdued tyrrany in your approach ๐Ÿ˜€

    mr angry: i think those rumours may be true ๐Ÿ™‚

    steve: oh how perfectly you liken this to maths. thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

    maliha: sorry, can’t have that much fun. not allowed ๐Ÿ˜›

    tanz: you’re a champion. now how much do i owe you? ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Let’s get mathematical. If we integrate fun with respect to responsibility, we’ll get the natural log of responsibility plus a constant. And then if we graph the integrated function we’ll get a graph that looks like the inversed graph of e to the power of r.
    Ok, I’m babbling I know but my point is you can always have fun and responsibility at the same time. However, you can’t have maximum fun and maximum responsibility at the same time.
    Me, I can always have maximum fun and responsibility at the same time. My secret? Well, it wasn’t much of a secret anyway, my idea of fun is to read a book so you go figure.

  8. You know what? I’m gonna have to disagree. I’m a heap of fun(even if i do say so myself). But I am also a very responsible person when the time is appropriate. My freinds see me as the mum, yet i’m also the instigator of all the exeptionally fun stuff we do. Perhaps I have struck a balance? Meybe(even though you have a mountain of responsibilities), you should try a bit of randomness… I sit down each evening and think of one convo starter and one stupid joke to get me through the next day. Try it- I swear it works!!! x
