I was up at 5 AM folks. FIVE.
That’s when, like, ARMY PEOPLE get up. To go run hills and save the world and all.
I did not run hills, nor save the world, BUT I did laundry and read the bible.
Not at the same time. But still.
And THEN I ate a completely healthy and hearty bowl of steel-cut oats (the oats for hipsters!) and blueberries and I felt all BAM! I’m gonna kick some serious BEHIND today. I’m on FIRE! I had OATS that were cut by STEEL!
And then, in about an hour, I noticed this:
Yep, that’s my laundry installation. It’s got a great aesthetic, and I’m going to leave it in the living room for a very long time, I think.
I call this sculpture, Expansion.
I Washed A Bunch of Clothes But Folding Them Makes Me Feel Sad
And so, instead of dealing with reality, I decided to take the dog on a walk. I figured when I got home, the laundry will have flown away, like laundry does.
Ok, it never does that but it’s a really pretty day. So there’s that.
And I took the dog and we spied this:
And I wondered if somehow the laundry was trying to tell me something? It made me feel better. Even if it wasn’t about the laundry, somebody, somewhere, was trying to be nice about something. And so, the universe smiled. As the universe does.
THEN, I came across this:
And I was all, I GOT YOU UNIVERSE; I SEE WHAT YOU’RE DOING HERE.
And the dog and I strutted home, in the fall leaves, all crunchy and awesome. And I was feeling crunchy and awesome. And Hosmer managed to completely match up his little prancy paws with my ipod.
Who knew that The Doobie Brothers were Hosmer’s JAM, y’all?
He was all prancy-prancy and “But what a fool believes, he sees. No wise man has the power to reason away!”
And I was all, “What seems to be, is always better than nothing, than nothing at all!!!” And I think we kinda freaked out an older gentleman who was trying to get in his truck, but I just smiled and waved a lot. And kept singing about fools believing.
And THEN I got home and the universe still had not put away the four tons of clothes in my living room.
I get it, Universe. There’s only so much that you will do for me. You’re not an enabler, I’ll give you that.
But it still was an awesome morning. So far the art installation of kids’ socks and Star Wars beach towels has not moved. I think it adds a certain touch to house. I might add my whites’ load to it later, to go for a little more height.
And here we are. This is the best song in the history of songs. And there is SUCH good hair going on. Give it a listen, and you will feel all I LOVE YOU, UNIVERSE, too.
