I found mine for this challenge, and as fate would have it, I had nothing on there for the letter L.
So I’ll go with ‘lists’.
I need lists.
I feel less scattered if I have a list to follow.
The most important being my grocery list. I know that’s pretty common with everyone. The time I think I don’t need one is the time I will most certainly forget something. Take today for example. All I needed were four things, just four things: tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, an avocado and french bread. Do you think I managed to walk home with all of them? Nope. Didn’t make a list, forgot the french bread.
When we were first married, we didn’t have a washer or dryer. One day I stopped off at the grocery store to get one thing—laundry soap. That’s all. Nothing else. Just laundry soap. I paid, walked out to the truck, drove to the laundromat, filled the first washer up and realized I had left my laundry soap at the store. I was too embarrassed to go back. “Uh, I believe I forgot my laundry soap, here’s my receipt to prove it.” Sheesh!
But on the flip side I was never good at tests in school that had lists.
I was in one history class in high school where the teacher spent every day of that semester writing dates/events on the board. We were required to copy what she wrote, study it and take a test that matched the dates with the person or event. Forget it.
Multiple choice was the worst. I could’ve answered the question and got it right if you’d simply ask, but make me pick between A,B,C,D or all of the above and you’ve just managed to give me a huge brain fart.
There you have it. My thoughts on the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to lists.
What about you? Are you a list maker?
It’s All Have List Have Peace Good!
