As I enjoy my second diet Coke of the day, I am reminded of stuff. It’s all a little hazy and disconnected, but who really cares? These are my thoughts after all.
So . . . I decided to make a “To Think” list. You know, it’s like a “To Do” list except not really. You never get everything on your To Do list done because you never have enough time to finish it all. A To Think list is much easier. You can check them off one by one during those times you’re stuck waiting to do something else. Like while you’re driving (since you can’t talk on your cell phone anymore unless you have a handsfree thing), or when you’re waiting for an appointment (instead of reading the July 2001 issue of Time magazine), or while waiting in line at Wal-Mart (because the people ahead of you can’t read the sign that says “this lane only 10 items or less”), or when you’re in the shower (especially early in the morning when you can’t sing because other people in the house are still sleeping).
Anyway, I concluded that if I make a To Think list I won’t forget to think about the things that need further thinking. Know what I mean? My To Think List includes critical issues such as:
– Should I remove the 6 weeks of dust accumulation on the TV stand before Molly Maid comes to clean the house?
– When my car’s fuel indicator states I have 19 km left before empty, can I make the round trip from my house to the church via Mom’s house without having to get gas?
– Is it really worth the expense to order custom-fitted muzzles for my precious grandsons so that the 4 minute drive to school every morning is delightfully quiet?
– Should I spend the money I received for Christmas on new shoes, a 2TB hard drive for my computer, or paint for the family room?
– What’s the best way to tell some of my customers to leave their bratty kids in the car without saying “leave your bratty kids in the car”?
And for my dear readers that believe I have truly slipped over the edge this time, well, why don’t you put that on your very own To Think List. Have fun pondering.
