Learn Something Already: Day 3

Still looking for the learning. As yet, brain does not feel measurably smartened.

Day 3
I read a post on the Zen Habits blog titled, “55 Ways to Get More Energy”. One of the tips that was new to me was: Change your socks mid-way through the day. A change of socks will apparently leave you refreshed and ready to take on the afternoon. I mentioned this to a friend who tells me that soldiers in the field are advised to change socks 2-3 times daily. This idea makes sense to me. Although I generally do not wear socks, I might be willing to change that if it works better than the 4PM pot of coffee technique that I am currently using.

Last week, I briefly stepped out of mom-land and did some production work on the set of a new game show. Knowing I would be on my feet for the better part of 4 days, I decided to employ my own version of the sock tip. Because I am sock-free, I brought 2 extra changes of shoes and changed them throughout the day. It was somewhat effective, although by the third day, the cameraman I was working with began referring to me as “Imelda”.

What I learned: I prefer sitting to standing.


  1. hahah...that's funny Imelda. I will try the sock/shoe thing. I thought about you yesterday as i learned something's not something useful, but still it was a new piece of info: The origin of the word Spam. Spam is abbreviated for Spiced Ham.
