they’ll get theirs
My world was unexpectedly turned upside down this morning.
It wasn’t because I had yet another nail in my tire.
It wasn’t because Maya was kissing the bottom of the autographed and used ballet shoe she talked me into buying when we were at the ballet yesterday.
It wasn’t even because I saw Ali eating and dropping crumbs all over my desk. Again.
No, it was much, much worse.
Do you see it? The white wire hanger in a sea of black velvet?
I can almost picture Ali and Maya conspiring against me: “Let’s throw a bit of aluminum into Mom’s meticulously organized and color-coded closet and see how long it takes for her to freak out.”
It took me approximately 0.2 seconds to appropriately deal with and dispose of the hanger in question. Ali and Maya? They’ll get theirs too.
It’s just a matter of time.
