favorite things.

Standard

i’m very honored to see

that i was squeezed in between

‘tacos’ and ‘fall’

as one of my grandie’s favorite things. 

life does not get better than that.

i love you too.

superpowers.

Standard

the grandies offered me a chance

to choose my superpower –

flight, strength, invisibility, speed, or shape shift?

i chose invisibilty

got inside of the machine

they powered it up

when i came out

they confirmed that i was now invisible.

except for my feet

which did not fit in the box.

i can live with that.

to do list – style a:

play with the ponies 1.

pack the cars. 2.

go to bed 3.

get in the car to go on vacation 4.

do fun things 5. 

a major contrast in approaches

both with the same desired outcome

two grandies

each with their own

style of list

and

way of getting ready 

and

organizing things

to go on a trip.

to do list – style b:

(loose translation):

‘go around and around in a twisty circle and get some stuff done

and not some other stuff and then hide for a while

and eat something you find outside

and then get in the car to go on vacation and do fun things.’

(i am more of a ‘b-list style’ of organizer. what about you – a or b?)

“the process and organization leading up to cooking the egg

can tell you a lot about the cook.”
