In Homer’s Odyssey the Lotus Eaters make people lose track of all time and all desire to do anything but eat the lotus and have fun.
This morning, I had a half hour to spare before work. My choices were: print and mail a letter to my mom, drop off some drycleaning, drop off some library books, and go buy a book for my nephew; or watch a TV show I had recorded.
I think I know what the Lotus Eaters have evolved into.
