The Great Balance

Ah, I see today’s going to be one of those

I remembered to put on deodorant but forgot to brush my teeth.

I succeeded in getting my fingernails trimmed back only to fail at getting a shave.

I have a watch around my wrist but no belt around my waist.

I avoided spilling coffee on myself only to splash water all over my crotch in the restroom.

Yeah… trade-offs. Equal parts of delight and disappointment with just a pinch of irony.

    No, not at the office. I'm actually pretty picky about that. I don't like people seeing me trim my nails. Or my nose hair, for that matter. ;-)The restroom sinks in my office building are a tad low and the water faucets create a jet-blast when only halfway opened up, so it's actually pretty easy to soak yourself below the belt.

    You need to frame this and hang it on the wall next to your front door. Not only will it be a great check-list, but will also serve as a reminder that things could be worse!

    Hope the rest of your day is better. At least you've got a good attitude.
    I'm ready to bust something and my day hasn't been that bad.

    I love the idea of a doorside checklist.
