The "I'm Never Going to Europe" Life Metaphor

September 11, 2006

It's been a while. I've been doing lots of laundry, lots of pickin' up after yay-hoos, and some running. Yesterday, I was in the car with my mom. She is finalizing the last minute details of her trip to Europe. You know, the important stuff like tiny shampoo bottles and lipstick that doubles as a razor and re-usable prophylactic. It was at this point that I realized I most likely will never make it to Europe. It's not that I want to per se.... I just have the limitation thereof. And thus, I started to see all of the other stuff I cannot do even if I wanted.

And so, that's my new saying for when I feel beyond trapped (which happens frequently as I do not appreciate the caged rat feeling - at least rats get cheese without having to pay for it): I cannot watch a danged TV show uninterupted and I'm never going to Europe.
