I have a problem. I may need an intervention

I have realized for a long time that I have a problem with “things”. I like things and worse – I like to collect things. For instance right now at my desk I have the following within my reach (either in a drawer or on my desk)

  • 3 Pair of scissors (I have more in a drawer)
  • 3 Fingernail files
  • 3 Small Rulers
  • 47 Pens/pencils
  • 7 Highlighters
  • 11 post-it pads of varying sizes and colors
  • 13 Lip Thingies (liners, glosses, sticks, and balm)

This is stuff just at my desk within my immediate reach- of course there is more stuff tucked in various drawers and corners. The bad thing is — if I walked into an Office Max or Office Depot today I probably would come out with a cool pen, notebook, or post-it pad. Obviously I’ve got a problem. Perhaps I need an intervention.

Letter I really want to write:

Dear Golds Gym Patrons,

Spraying yourself with perfume and/or cologne does not make you stink less at the gym. In fact – it makes the rest of us go into severe allergy and asthma attacks (even those who don’t have asthma) and leaves us choking on the treadmill wanting to heave. We then have to go through the mental debate of switching to a different treadmill which we know you will notice thus making you self conscious about smelling bad for which you will think you have to put on even more AXE (a.k.a “crap in a bottle for men”.) Save us all — deodorant is all you need.

Another point I’d like to make is that I have absolutely no desire whatsoever to see the top of your thong (I’m not talking about shoes girls) or the tramp-stamp on your back. I know you want me to see them them because you insist on rolling down the waist of your sweats/shorts so that I can see.

With Love,

Your Gym-Rat Friend

Global Warming . . . Yes I know it’s like “Earth Week” or whatever but seriously — it is so so so hard to believe Global Warming exists when it has been “freakin’ cold” for months and that today should be a beautiful spring day — and it’s snowing. Hmmm evidence enough for me.

p.s. Yes – I do recycle.
