Today is National Goof Off Day!  A day to celebrate not doing what you are supposed to do, and just having some fun. A day to put off work, and just be silly.

Apparently National Goof Off Day was founded in 1976 by a woman named Monica Dufour and her grandfather William D. Chase.

Although you technically don't have the day off, unless you take a vacation day, try to sneak in some goofing off time.   Let the boss think you are working.

As we honor National Goof Off day, here are some great ways to goof off in Amarillo.

    Binge Watching Shows in Your Own Living Room

    When I don't want to work, I love to binge watch shows.  So what's a better place to do that, than your own living room couch.  Goof off on your couch with your remote in hand and a bowl of popcorn and your favorite beverage.

    Mall Shopping

    One of the best goof off days is a day spent shopping. The perfect place to do that is Westgate Mall.   I mean when was the last time you just went to the mall and shopped.  You don't have to spend money, you could window shop and hey while you are there, catch a movie, play some glow in the dark golf or just enjoy lunch or a pretzel.
