i just needed a sock!
Just me thinking, Gee, I am out of socks. Um. Where are the elves?
There are no elves. Or, put another way, there is only one elf and tragically she is named Max.
So the tragically alone in housework [all you other elves are fired] Elf Max thinks, Okay, just do socks —
Okay, AND underoos. You are almost out of them. So. Socks and underoos. That will be easy.
But then, if I am doing socks and underoos, well, I might as well do a couple shirts.
And as long as I am doing socks AND underoos AND shirts and by now you know jeans and towels AND going downstairs, well, maybe these sweats too. And —
I am going by the bed collecting all this and think, Okay. Just grab the pillowcases.
Only, then, pulling pillow cases, I think, what about the comforter cover? And —
If you are going to do the comforter cover you should probably do the bottom sheet too —
I think well as long as I am going downstairs I should grab the trash [you know that means grabbing the freaking recycling too] and that means walking through the kitchen and —
FOR FUCK’S SAKE SOMEWHERE IN THERE I DID THE DISHES AND ACCIDENTALLY SCRUBBED THE KITCHEN FLOOR!
*the kitchen floor was not my fault the trash bag leaked
