Word of the Day 5/31/15 Procrastination

Procrastination (noun)
procrastination [proh-kras-tuh-ney-shuh n, pruh-]


noun
1. the act or habit of procrastinating, or putting off or delaying, especially something requiring immediate attention: She was smart, but her constant procrastination led her to be late with almost every assignment.

Origin: 1540s, from Middle French procrastination and directly from Latin procrastinationem (nominative procrastinatio) "a putting off from day to day," noun of action from past participle stem of procrastinare "put off till tomorrow, defer, delay," from pro- "forward" (see pro- ) + crastinus "belonging to tomorrow," from cras "tomorrow," of unknown origin.

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
