Gun, Get Offa Me!

Been under the gun for real, just catching up on stuff I missed while traveling for work and trying to make a dent in all the dangly bits that were waiting for me when I got back.  Today was all about errands — laundry, cleaning out the fridge (my God, it was terrible), packing boxes of books for the Prison Book Program, tying up all kinds of loose ends — figuratively and knnitterly/sewerly-wise.  And, I actually made it to the post office, and not while on the way to another errand — I’m saving a couple for tomorrow!

I was inspired to get this one task done — and, really, it seems silly, because it wasn’t hard to do, just hard to get going to do it — by the non-stop, what’s-the-next-thing, where-are-we-going, and what’s-on-your-list spirit of my mom today.  So much so that I co-opted the Mambo #5 Lyrics into an ode to the day:

Ladies and gentlemen!

This is Tuesday No. 1 !

One, two, three, four, five
Just me is in the car, so come on let’s ride
To the post office around the cornah’
I must ship a box right now and soon
But I really don’t wanna
Spend 20 bucks on some cloth and swoon 

To send it to some guy, or to the moon
I like UPS, DHL, FedEx and Mail
But not sure which one will deliver without fail
So what can I do? I really beg you, my muse
Tell me, Meme, what shoes would you use?
To make this errand quick, and done in a flash 
And please not use lots of cash  
[FYI, and not part of the verse, it cost $17.45 to priority mail a box 12 miles.  Worth it not to have to go back to deliver it in person, though!]
A little bit of Meme in my life
A little bit of Larry by my side
A little bit of Aimee is all I need
A little bit of dunzo is what I see
A little bit of ‘I did’ in the sun
A little bit of ‘I will’ all night long
A little bit of list crossed off here I am
A little bit of this tells me I can
 
Try to get that song out of your head.  And, if you do, tell me how you did it.  Packing for NYC now! See you on the flipside — or maybe not. I may just stay!
