Our dishwasher refuses to turn off when the washing cycle ends. Left to its own devices, it will keep humming and heating, wasting energy until someone turns the dial all the way to “off.” The wife was wise to leave a reminder for me when she started the dishwasher one recent morning, and I couldn’t resist the obvious joke.
Putting off a doctor’s appointment is a time-honored art and an unmistakable sign of a curmudgeon-in-making. Yes, I finally made an appointment, but I am proud that I wasted as much time as possible first.
Answers to unspoken questions:
1) Yes, expect chalkboard drawings to become a semi-regular feature.
2) Yes, you will see more directions soon, too. Good projects take some time to finish!
Context: I’m a fan of having a “landing strip” near the front door for storing keys, wallet, mail, and similar things that people need to grab before leaving the house. I recommend Ikea’s LUNS chalkboard/magnetboard as a great, cost-effective option. Besides hooks for keys and a storage space for everything else, it also provides a place to leave messages, shopping lists, or anything else that you can hang up with a magnet or draw with chalk. In my house, the chalkboard oscillates between simple reminders and a venue for the macabre. It’s like Pictionary (or “Eat Poo, You Cat”) based on a to-do list.
