A friend told me the other day that a mutual friend/acquaintance had passed an interesting comment on me. He described me as “very down to earth and practical”
Gentlemen, take note. “Down to earth and practical” does not rate high on the list of Ways I want to be Thought Of.
One of my great frustrations is the extent to which I am forced to be practical, to make sure that the things that need to be done get done. In fact, I bitterly resent that this leaves little time for whimsy and fun.
I was really quite upset about it, even though I know he didn’t mean it at all unkindly.
Then I reminded myself that being upset doesn’t achieve anything, pulled my head in, and attacked my To-Do list.
An aside. Last week, I created a new tag – not your earth logic. It has since occurred to me that that could potentially be applied to 90% or more of the posts I make here. Ooops.
