We've discussed before how Carl throws things at the garbage can and doesn't much care if they land in the garbage can. The opposite is true, he can intend for things to go elsewhere, but if it lands in the garbage can he doesn't notice.
|What landed in the garbage this time?|
|Oh, okay, just throw it in the wash.|
Yesterday i arrived to many open doors.
There's no knowing what he was looking for in those cabinets, but you can tell where he's been by the doors he leaves open.
When he went to go get his extra hour of rest in the chair, i closed the two doors between his room and the living room so i wouldn't wake him or his father. He had to come back to get an extra pajama top (yes, he was wearing pajamas already, what does that have to do with anything?), then an extra blanket, then to put on deodorant. As i pointed out to him that he didn't need deodorant yet, he hadn't showered, he looked confused, then said, "Okay, but where's the top?" We had to find the top.
Yes, i had to go behind him all 3 times to shut those doors again, too.
That's when i noticed the dental floss on the table.
Pulling on it, i realized it was attached to something.
|There's the culprit, the floss is still attached to the container!|
His drawers were the usual higgle piggle.
He couldn't find the two pair of sox i'd left for him the in the bathroom. Later, when i was cleaning the bathroom, i found another pair.
|Doesn't everyone keep a pair of socks in the drawer with the razor?|
While dusting, i found more clothes behind the TV.
|Behind the TV, dust bunnies, underwear and a sock, among other things.|
He'd also left me this gem.
|Shoes Need Cleaning|
Yes, i cleaned them and put them with the mates in the closet. How much you want to bet they are already separated again?
How about some funnies.
The sport of choice for the urban poor is basketball.
The sport of choice for maintenance level employees is bowling.
The sport of choice for frontline workers is football.
The sport of choice for supervisors is baseball.
The sport of choice for middle management is tennis.
The sport of choice for corporate executives and officers is golf.
CONCLUSION: the higher you go in the corporate structure, the smaller your balls become.
There must be a lot of people in Washington whose game of choice is marbles.
