Because we need a change of subject around here …

I wanted to share my favorite e-mail that I’ve received in the last five years:

“Dear Goddess & Friends,

It’s 5 p.m. and I’m going home. I did not finish that urgent “Thing” you needed. I am also not acknowledging the other urgent “Things” you gave to me two days ago. Oh and I’m on vacation for the next month. Have a nice life. SEEYA.

(name withheld)”

OK maybe I paraphrased. Or not.

There’s the part of me that wants to DO ALL THE THINGS because it’s the right thing to do for me. (Not for them.)

The other part of me that’s earned my keep is like, welp, they get to have a cruddy day when All The Things move to overdue status.

I’m not gonna lie — I’ll be twitching and itching in the meantime …
