I am playing make believe today.
Yes I am.
I’m pretending to be a type A person. This isn’t easy seeing as how I am more of a type, well let’s say, um… Z, yes Z person.
You say there isn’t a type Z?
Well I beg to differ, and it looks something like this:
Of course after she coughed up a lung and her temperature revealed that she was indeed toxic, I turned today’s type A-ness toward the school, telling them that yes I know my child has missed way too much school, but she’s been freakishly sick this year and what the heck was I supposed to do about it? Seriously, What?
I’m still waiting to hear from the principal.
After this morning’s upset, I turned my new type A self loose on the house. It’s called mind over matter baby and my Miss Type A Britches loves to clean the house, yes she does (at least that’s what I keep telling myself). And guess what, the house is almost all clean now (type A people clean much faster than Zs. Who knew?).
So I decided to take a blogging break (oh wait, do type A people take blogging breaks? I know, I’ll go pencil it in my planner, then it will be legit.) After my blogging break I’ll make my bed, vacuum, and fold some laundry, then my type A cleaning will be done (do type A people blog atop their unmade beds in mid-afternoon? Do type A people even sit atop their beds at all? I think not. Type A people probably only use their beds for sleeping, making them promptly upon rising. I’ll have to work on that one.)
Upon completion of my type A housework, I will use my A-1 spectacularness to contemplate dinner long before the actual dinner hour. Yes, I will actually know what I am cooking and begin preparing it long before it is time to eat. And instead of throwing out the brown bananas that are sitting on my kitchen counter, I will make banana bread for our family night treat. That’s right, no one will be running to the Mobile gas station to pick out candy tonight. It will be homemade baked goodness for all.
I would have pretended to be one sooner but Miss Z never wanted to play.
She can be such a baby sometimes.
