Why?

Why? Because I thought it would be funny to do that.

Actually, I’m asking myself why? am I stuck on this find a three letter word prompt today?

There are tons of 3 letter words in the world, and I think that’s my problem…too many. I can’t settle, or I couldn’t settle on any one of them. It’s typical of me to come to a standstill at anything where there are too many choices.

Why are there so many choices of the same things in the grocery store?

Why do I have so many things I should be doing, that I don’t want to do. Well, I want to do them, but there’s too many to make a decision about which one to do ‘first’. I just don’t like making decisions about things…what’s for supper…I don’t know or care…food? Some kind of food would be great…just don’t ask me what food.

Hobbies, crafts, scrap books, reading, cleaning, choosing…choosing…choosing! Which one, when, how? Now? I just can’t get started. So, I just do a little of this, a little of that, and nothing ever gets completely done. Too many distractions from all the choices.

So, I’m asking…why?

LOCO LETTERS

Standard

LOCO LETTERS

It’s that time of year, again. The coming end of a year, when all the calendar companies come out with their new designs. I see them displayed in all the stores, from bookstores, discount stores, grocery stores, and even kiosks in the mall. Hundreds of calendars emblazoned with the numbers of the new year ahead. Here’s my loco letter to them…

CALENDAR CRAZE (calendar daze)

Dear Calendar Companies,

I love your calendars. Every one of them are bright, colorful, and oh, so helpful. I mean, how else would I know what the months and days are, if not for you.

The thing is, I have a problem. You may not think it is a big problem, and for you it isn’t. You can only benefit from my dilemma. You see, I like so many of your calendars, I have a really hard time choosing one to buy. I want them all.

I only need one, yet I wind up buying quite a few. It’s because the pictures of kitty cats, puppies, horses, and scenery are so pretty. Then, as I’m trying to choose, I see the trivia ones, then the joke-a-day ones, then the cartoon ones, then the ones based on all the television shows.

All of these come in different styles, too. The regular, hang on the wall types, in all sizes, the ones you put on a desk, and the small planner ones you can carry around. There is a calendar depicting every subject, and taste the buyer might want.

How are we supposed to choose? I stand there at the display, weighing one against another. Which one has the ‘prettiest flowers’, the ‘cutest cats’, the ‘funniest’ cartoons? It is impossible, I tell you.

Remember, I only need one, but in the end, I buy several. Then, at home, I try to find places to put them all…the kitchen, the bedroom, the office, the garage, the bathroom? (because, who doesn’t need to know when the next full moon occurs, while you’re -ahem- busy in there?)

All this calendar buying, I’ll admit, is good for your company, and I do enjoy looking/reading them. I suppose one way we can have an enjoyable experience in buying lots of them, is to give them as gifts to friends and family.

Then, what do you know…we can sit back and wait to receive more calendars…the ones they bought as a gift for us!

Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
