Do you ever find that you have moments in your life where you appear to be awake, but really you’re probably still sleeping?
You know these times…the times when you put the remote in the fridge, or walk out your door twice in a row without your keys.
A while back I had my first “in person” client presentation(most of my clients were located in Dallas or San Diego), so I needed to represent the three P’s: to be prim, proper and prepared.
As per use’ I pressed sleep about a million times because I was exhausted – I’m pretty sure that button feels taken advantage of because I press it so often. When I finally got up, I went to the washing machine to throw the wash I had put in the night before into the dryer. I grabbed all my clothes, threw them in, grabbed the dryer sheets, threw in two (an extra one for good measure), proceeded to head to the shower and thought nothing of it…until it was time to take out my fluffed clothes.
It turns out that not only did I throw in the extra dryer sheet, but I actually took the entire box and threw that in too. FYI – it was a new box.
When I opened the dryer, sheets upon sheets of dryer sheets tumbled out. My clothes were so covered in dryer sheet goodness (grossness) that I had to wash them again 3 more times.
So, I went from being early to meet my boss, to being late and having a strong aura of Bounce sheets surrounding me. What’s that all about? My three P’s quickly turned into the three T’s: tardy, tainted and ticked-off.
