Nothing quite like the euphoria of meeting a deadline...
While I was whipping this revision into shape, I got a new doormat for my mom (because humor trumps all in the Schindler household):
|Front porch and toenails to be painted this week...|
Yeah. We think it's hilarious. In the past few weeks, though, NO ONE HAS RUNG OUR DOORBELL. Nobody. Neighbors won't. The mailman won't. A little boy stopping by with his school fundraiser actually shouted "DING DONG!" when he stepped up to our door. I'm not kidding.
It just shows, I think, the power of the written word. Shows how seriously we all take the written word—whether it's in a book, a Tweet, a status update...or on a doormat.
