Got a question for ya…

I’m forever looking for ways to make my life more efficient – because efficiency is not one of my strong suits. Deliberate? Yes. Meticulous? Often. Slow? Yes, yes, yes! And I’ve confessed that I’m not a multi-tasker, so I like to think about things I could cut out of my life all together. Upon meditating on that, I have come upon a few things that I have come to classify as complete acts of futility. For example,

  • Mopping the kitchen floor when you have a preschooler and a kindergartner – We could seriously feed a small country with what I sweep off the floor.
  • Wearing make-up during the summer in South Carolina – When I wear make-up during the summer, my beautified face melts into a puddle in my lap within nanoseconds of walking outside.
  • Plucking my eyebrows – Plucking is painful and causes the darn things to be fruitful and multiply. How counterproductive is that?

Lest you think this is a woman thing, Chris takes a shower before he cuts the grass. Go figure…

So what in your life is a total act of futility but you continue to do it anyway (because you have to or because you choose to)? Something that you do that is almost immediately undone as soon as you do it? I look forward to hearing from you…

    You’ll have to talk to your brutha about that one…
