questions of the rhetorical kind

  • Have you ever found that all of a sudden your house reeks to high heaven, only to discover that something has died and gone to Hades in the fridge AND pantry?
  • Do you find that some of your best ideas turn out to be your worst ideas?
  • Or that some of your bad ideas turn out to be halfway decent?
  • Do you have a collection of unfinished projects?
  • Do you consistently lie in bed until your second born is awake, leaving your firstborn to fend for himself in the meantime?
  • Have you ever procrastinated your laundry until it's taken over every nook and cranny in your house?
  • Do you have rings around the toilets, scummy showers and spotty mirrors?
  • Can you write your name on the floors in your kitchen, just by cleaning them?
  • Have you ever called your mom in an effort to prolong the morning?
  • Do you have the best of intentions of accomplishing much, only to find that by the end of the day you've done nothing much?
  • Do you have a literal/mental portfolio set up for your ultimate dream home?  And do you spend hours browsing blogs, websites and magazines while adding to said portfolio?
  • Do you love perusing through Goodwill, Ross, garage sales and dollar stores?
  • Do you watch cartoons?  And enjoy them?
  • Do you constantly neglect your appearance, without a care in the world?
  • Do you enjoy people watching?
  • How about window shopping?
I may or may not answer yes to all of the above.  Can we still be friends?  *B


  1. I wonder how much of all that was passed down from me to you? If so, do I apologize or congratulate? Either way, I love you how you are!

  2. yes. yes. yes. yes. i adore you beth.

  3. Life as a mom. I hear ya loud and clear. ;)

  4. Even though it is rhetorical, I also answer yes to everything except the cartoons, I do watch them but I don't necessarily enjoy them! Thanks for helping me feel normal!
