Off the top of my head, I can think of three songs about Mondays (in the order I thought of them; not sure what that means): The Carpenters, The Mamas and the Papas, and The Bangles.
But I can’t think of any songs about Tuesdays, which for me are usually the worst days of the week.
Mondays are usually pretty busy in corporate-drone-world, plus usually the “weekend glow” hasn’t worn off (yet). And I can’t remember (yet) all the things I need to do for the upcoming week that I should have done the previous week or on the weekend.
Tuesdays are a mess. There are a million things that need to be done. And now there are only 4 days of the week left (3 if you don’t count Tuesdays, since at the point of I-am-counting-days I am in full panic mode already).
So I thought, why not do a Tuesday series?
I thought what I would do is have my Carl tell me a random word and I would write about a post about it. I pitched this idea tonight, expecting for him to maybe laugh at me (not sure why, he never honestly does), or maybe, just maybe to give me a word. Like apple. Or turtle. Or another random (easy word). Instead he comes up with:
Maybe this wasn’t my better ideas! Hahahaha. Well, I’ll try it for at least this week. So, perfection. Nice to meet you. Oh we know each other well. Yeah, maybe too well. I am a perfectionist. Well that is the official definition. I am nothing like that, but let’s just say I am a procrastinator of epic proportions, so that doesn’t help! Seriously though. In a lot of ways I have tried not to be such a perfectionist about certain things because it makes me act like so not a nice person! And truly, does it matter, anyway? I read in an article once that a good strategy to determine if something was a big deal (like if something wasn’t perfect) was to decide if your future self would think it was a big deal in 5 minutes, 5 hours, 5 days, 5 weeks, 5 months, and 5 years. Good point.
What do you think? Do you have any “interesting” stories about perfection?
