to do list

I like to write lists. At school I use a steno pad to keep track of what I need to do. Some days I just want to write silly lists like this:

1. While I am sick, instead of moping pretend that I am fabulously rich and that I get to lie around the house EVERY day and watch daytime television.

2. Ponder the hard questions in life such as “If a tree falls in the woods without no one around does it make a sound?”

3. Dance around the house while folding laundry.

4. Tell people that my antibiotics are actually anti-aggression pills and start growling as I say I need to take one real bad.

5. Pretend that I am a character in a Jane Austen novel and talk in a British accent all day using words such as amiable, accomplished, rawther, constitution.

6. While drinking yet another glass of water or juice to get rid of this sickness pretend that I am really on the beach in a lounger sipping a pina colada (non-alcoholic for me).

7. Take a really long shower or bath and then pamper myself like I am at the spa.

8. When my mother says that I look pale remind her that 200 years ago it was actually a good sign to be pale – it meant that you did not work because you were filthy rich.

9.  Keep making lists to avoid the reality of going back to school tomorrow while not completely healthy.

  1. Have you heard of Listography? It started as a book, but there’s a website now, too. It’s lots of fun, and a bit easier somehow than journaling. 😉 Check it out!
