I received the joke below from
Ulla, one of our members from Australia. Although
we don't use this list to post jokes, I'm sending this one on to the group for a
reason. The description of this person's day, although it's supposed
to be comical, is so much like most days I have - I couldn't help but
wonder how many of you have days like this.
It's good to see the humor in it, anyway! I plan on
keeping this page and the next time when someone asks me what I did all day,
I'll pull it out! You may have to scroll down to read
Enjoy - happy Sunday!

how it goes...
I decide to wash the car and start toward the garage
when I notice the mail on the table. I figure I might as well go through the
mail before washing the car. I lay my keys down on the desk, sort the
mail and discard the junk mail. As I discard the junk mail, I see
that the garbage can is full. I lay the bills down on the desk and pick
up the garbage can. Then I figure that since I'll be going near the
mailbox while taking out the rubbish, I may as well pay these few bills
first. Now where did I put my chequebook?
Ah, here it is!
Oops, there's only one cheque left. My extra cheques are in the other
room. Oh! There's the cup that I was drinking earlier! Hmmm, I guess I'd
better take it out to the kitchen and discard it. On the way to the
kitchen, my flower arrangement catches my eye and I realize it
needs more water. I pour the cup down the sink.
As I wipe a spot off the counter I
see my glasses on the window sill. It's about time. I've been looking
for them all morning! I guess I'd better go put them away so I can find
them again later. But first I've got to add water to the flowers...
Hey! What's the TV remote doing in the kitchen? Aaaaaagh! I'd
better take it to the living room because we'll never think to look for it in
the kitchen tonight. I take the remote out to the coffee table and find
that the living room is a bit untidy, so I go around arranging cushions
and throw pillows.
Then I'm off down the hall, to... to... what the
heck was I planning to do?
End of Day: The car isn't
washed, the bills are unpaid, the flowers aren't watered, the chequebook still
only has one cheque and now I can't seem to find my car keys!
I don't seem to have gotten anything done today, but I
just can't figure out why because I KNOW I WAS BUSY ALL DAY LONG!!! I
realize this is a serious condition and that I'd better seek help.
first, I think I'll check my email.....
