Today is my first day (physically) back at work. While y’all are getting ready to wind down for a restful weekend, I’m up to my armpits in young adults. That’s a bad image. I could probably say that another way. Anyhoo. While I attempt to direct imbibable data into thirsting minds, here’s a few thoughts to ponder. I never run out of things to wonder about and thought I’d share since my schedule is packed until sometime next August.
1. Who’s idea was this working gig anyhow?
Give me a name so I know who to blame. I’m really fed up with this idea of having to waste so much time producing an income. There are things I would rather be doing: reading a stack of good books, writing a stack of good books, figuring out how to make my house self-cleaning, building a greenhouse, learning how to cook Cambodian food, and…well, let’s just say the list is lengthy.
2. Why doesn’t money grow on trees?
I feel this is a perfectly valid question. Horticulturalists can hybridize all sorts of plants by grafting a bit of this onto a bit of that, and geneticists can hybridize all sorts of animals, even the ones nature decided really should be stand-alones. So how do we do something useful like crossbreeding an ATM with an evergreen? Think on it, send out feelers and get the process started. Really. Technogeeks unite and give it a shot.
3. Who decided there would never be enough time?
That’s another name I want, another head aimed for the chopping block. As soon as that nifty time machine is completed, I’m zipping back to the moment “time” began and giving that so & so with the calendar, a piece of my mind. If it weren’t for that ninny-headed decision, I’d get a lot more done. I bet you would too.
4. Why don’t more men ditch the pants?
Honestly?! Maybe they don’t realize they’re missing out on comfort and ventilation. Ladies know a man in a sarong is hot. A man in a kilt makes feminine knees wobble. Don’t take my word for it – ask around. I’ve got nothing against a nice pair of snug jeans, but I’m just saying – a little clothing experimentation is not a bad thing. Embrace the change!
5. Why can’t I have my cake and eat it too?
Tell me again why I can’t have it all. I don’t understand why this shouldn’t be possible. I’m willing to try. I’m game to give it a shot. If I didn’t have to waste time on details like working, or producing an income, worrying about time to do everything, and having to search out men in skirts to ogle…I’d be able to have it all. Whatever IT is. That’s my line of reasoning.
