My Natural Inclination

Ovid, Amores 1.9.41 (tr. Grant Showerman):
For myself, my bent was all to dally in ungirt idleness.

ipse ego segnis eram discinctaque in otia natus.
Somewhat more literally:
I myself was lazy and born for careless leisure.
Alan Crease writes:
It's a pity that you don't include images because the recent Ovid extract could be perfectly illustrated by the great male role model, Al Bundy.
