Mirah the cat in blue

I struggle in life more than I’d like to admit. I get frustrated when I need to tie my shoes. I’m restless just living.

I do better when I’m around people but am prone to isolate. I never think about drinking anymore but will make myself sick on licorice.

If I don’t have a big art project in the works I don’t feel complete. I’ll often burn through months building and then burn myself out with the pens and the paints. Then I’ll only want to play video games for weeks on end.

I brush my teeth two to three times a day and then rinse with peroxide. And then use my water pick with three fingers of alcoholic mouthwash in the reservoir. I’m interested in thoroughness.

I don’t like that I can never get the fan oscillation just right and will often wonder what I’m supposed to be doing in life. Because so far I feel like I get really close but the finish line is for those other guys.

It’s like practicing for a play, memorizing all the lines, rehearsing every morning, afternoon, and night. And then when the curtains open only a few people have shown up.

I put on Ludovico or Baroque so I can listen while falling asleep. Then I won’t think and will drift off to soothing piano keys and calming violins.

But I think anyway. I write notes like these in my phone. Sometimes they’re spiritual and fruity. Other times they’re not. The fan blows so loud I can’t hear the music.

And then the cat jumps on me and I get up and brush my teeth again.

I’m not even kidding.

The horror of the fitted sheet

tcr! · May 12, 2019 at 5:16 pm

The horror of the fitted sheet

These pillows and their corresponding cases and this sheet for fitting have all been resting comfortably on my bed in a laundry cocoon for the better part of the day.

Whenever I walk into the bedroom my heart plummets. And then I walk right back out of the bedroom.

Because I never know which corner to start with the fitted sheet. And it really doesn’t matter anyway. Whichever corner I choose is wrong. Then I spend the next half day twisting round and round what feels like a linen Rubik’s cube. But there are no colored squares to guide you. No YouTube master patterns to follow.

I don’t even bother with the top sheet anymore either. That’d be one more key tumbler for me to fumble with in a lock of woven madness.

All the while both cats are sitting in feline bemusement, or quite possibly in feline judgment. They have no thumbs to help, only fur to shed on a clothesline fresh comforter.

And then the pillow stuffing. I feel like Real Trump must have when he had to stuff all those jumbo, pinto quesadillos into that supersize Taco Bell sack on Cinco de Mayo of 2018.

Don’t get me wrong. I love my pillow forts as much as Abed and Troy but when will this laundress lunacy ever end? And there’s two more pillows off camera. Because five pillows is the minimum requirement for entry.

So I guess this is what’s really been happening in my Geneva house, this Sunday, this Twelfth of May.

How are you guys?

I have learned that bed linen laundry day is nothing short of a full cardio workout…for I am the lover of the duvet… It’s a wonderful concept that is deceiving…a simplistic idea that is nothing short of madness. The stuffing of SIX decorative pillow shams…pure torture.

While you have the fitted sheet on the bed correctly, take a vibrant thread and needle. And stitch a little something on the corner or the elastic area. Pick one corner and do it to all the fitted sheets. Maybe pick a corner you will remember? It helps the sheets get done much faster, because I too have the same issue! Same with the USB things! I always pick the wrong end first

Patti66 · May 12, 2019 at 8:27 pm

I’m for quick- I use a permanent marker and put a “T” in the two top corners when the new sheets are on the bed.

If it helps, locate the tag on the fitted sheet (assuming there is one). Once you find out which orientation is correct, burn into your memory where the corner with the tag is, then always start with that corner.

I had never thought of marking the corner(s) of the fitted sheet but it is a brilliant plan!

I’m envisioning a pirate map of sorts with dashes leading to a treasure chest X. Ye map noting where there be sharks, and where there be safe havens, and where there be death.

And of where be ye fastest route to sailing the seas of fitted comfort.

I’ve attached a quick mockup that’s neither my bed nor my map, but you’ll get the idea. I’m a man not a cartographer.

Dials on the dashboard

Dials on the dashboard

Do you ever go to turn the the dials on your dashboard and then think to yourself, “I can’t do anything with these. Changing them isn’t go to make my life any better. It’s not going to solve any of my struggles, ease any of my pain. It’s going to do absolutely nothing for me if I twist anything here.”

I thought so.

Besides, now that you brought it to my attention, if I were to think about it, I’d be grateful for those knobs because they do change my life in a small way. As you may know, I get very cranky if too cold or too hot, so those little knobs can make my world a happier place.

Maybe you can get an ordinance against cupboards. What if you start calling it a cabinet instead? Maybe it will confuse the coffee. But then maybe the coffee will attack the floor. Idk sir. Can you hire a consultant?
