I know it’s dumb, but…
I can’t get a cleaning lady yet because first I have to clean my house thoroughly.
I don’t like to get a pedicure when my feet are in horrible condition, like after the winter.
I don’t like to go to a doctor until I know what’s wrong with me.
Not so dumb
I usually agonize if I have to break a commitment, but…
Last week I was scheduled to usher at a matinee performance of Shakespeare on the Common. (Boston Common that is.) The temperature was predicted to be 96. Due to take the 7 A.M. bus in, at 6 I said to Lincoln, “If I had a brain in my head I wouldn’t go today.” As I headed for the other room, I thought, “Wait a minute. I DO have a brain. I’m not going.” I emailed the person in charge with great apology. Meanwhile at 10 I received an email that the performance was to be canceled because of the heat!
