An Impossible, Endless Struggle

“Yeah, yeah, I know,” David said. “I’ll get around to it.”

“When?” Donna asked. “I swear, David, you’re impossible. Getting you to do anything around here is an endless struggle.”

“Well, Donna, your ‘honey-do’ list is so damn long, I have to be efficient when it comes how to parcel out my time,” David said. “But I assure you, when the time is right, I’ll glide right into the task. It’ll be so smooth, like butter. I promise.”

“Yeah,” Donna said sarcastically, “but will you glide into it before you die? Because if you don’t get to it soon, I’m going to kill you.”

    I wonder how many times per week, all around the world, this conversation takes place… 😉

        It’s probably more hilarious to me because I’m contentedly ALONE 🙂
