Job Opening: Wife Needed
October 17, 2008
For the past few weeks, I have been suffering from a malady recently diagnosed as sooncomeitis. More than a disease, its a syndrome, whose symptoms are pretty recognizable and, individually, are often taken for granted. That is, until you realize they are connected to and reinforce each other. Major symptoms (although not the only ones) include:
1. completing tasks in your head and convincing yourself that you actually did them;
2. beginning another task before you even complete the first one, and then forgetting which direction you were headed;
3. remembering to do something only to forget again the minute you get up to do it;
4. remembering that you left someone on hold or didn’t respond to an email several hours ago, just at the point where you are about to fall asleep.
I cannot tell you how many posts I have completed while driving, eating, and taking a shower, always on my way to somewhere. Lately, I barely have an hour to spare to sit down and write something down. While there may be several remedies for this situation, I am convinced that the one that is most amenable to my situation, is to get a wife. That way, I can stay focused on what I love to do, and don’t have to juggle so many other seemingly equally important things at the same time.
Serious applications and inquiries only. If applicants do not fulfill all the criteria for eligibility, don’t bother to contact me.
