THIS IS HOW IT STARTS…… (and for you young ‘uns……your time is coming)
I decide to water my garden.
As I turn on the hose in the driveway,
I look over at the car and decide it needs washing.
As I start toward the garage
I notice the mail on the front porch that I brought up earlier.
I decide to go through the mail
before I wash the car.
So I lay my car keys on the table,
put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table,
and notice that the can is full.
So I decide to put the bills back on the table
and take out the garbage first.
But then I think, since I’m going to be near the mailbox
when I take out the garbage anyway,
I might as well pay the bills first.
I take my checkbook off the table
and see that there is only one check left.
My extra checks are in my desk, in the study,
so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the can of Pepsi
I had been drinking.
I’m going to look for my checks,
but first I need to push the Pepsi aside so that I don’t
accidently knock it over.
The Pepsi is getting warm.
I decide to put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.
As I head toward the kitchen with the Pepsi,
a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye.
They need water.
I put the Pepsi on the counter
and discover my reading glasses that I had been searching for
I decide I better put them back on my desk,
but first I’m going to water the flowers.
I set the glases back down on the counter, fill a container with water,
and suddenly spot the TV remote that someone had left in the kitchen.
I realize that tonight when we go to watch tv,
I’ll be looking for the remote.
However, I won’t remember that it’s on
the kitchen table,
so I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs…
But first I’ll water the flowers.
I pour some water in the flowers.
Quite a bit of it spills on the floor.
So I set the remote back on the table,
get some towels and wipe up the spill.
Then I head down the hall trying to remember what I was
planning to do.
AT THE END OF THE DAY…
The car isn’t washed
The bills aren’t paid
There is a warm can of Pepsi sitting on the counter,
The flowers don’t have enough water,
There is still only 1 check in the checkbook,
I can’t find the remote,
I can’t find my glasses,
And I don’t remember what I did with the car keys.
When I try to figure out why nothing got done,
I’m really baffled.
I know I was busy all day
and I’m really tired.
I should get help for it
I’m going to check my e-mail…..
