Pick Any Two

You're probably familiar with the old business adage, "Good - Fast - Cheap - Pick Any Two." Meaning, if it's good and fast, it won't be cheap. If it's fast and cheap, it won't be good. If it's cheap and good, it won't be fast. For my purposes an accurate adage would be, "Read - Write - Laundry - Pick Any Two." Guess which one hasn't been picked lately?

The laundry was so very not done this morning that Bob was at risk of wearing two-sizes too small pajama pants and last summer's basketball jersey to school this morning. I managed to cobble an outfit together for him but I will admit that one of the socks he wore came from the dirty pile next to the hamper.

I know.


  1. Ha, at least one of his socks came from the dirty pile... and not both, plus underwear and shirts. It happens, you know?

    1. Wed didn't get to the wear-a-swimsuit-as-underwear place yet but it could happen. xo

  2. Listen, laundry is hard. I'd take quantum physics over laundry any day. (i don't even know what quantum physics is so....)

  3. Hey, you're running at a 50% sock average and I'd say that's damn good.


  4. That's exactly my problem! I always pick the reading and writing, too... Now I have a way to explain it scientifically to other people. Thanks!
