You know what I like? I like a list.
Not a useful list, not a list for organizational purposes. I do not like a list of things to buy at the grocery store. Because I can't be tied down like that, man. I have to be free, I need space to roam, I want all my produce options open. Why should I commit to spinach before I even see what the arugula looks like? Something deep in my brain recoils from creating useful lists. Not that I don't try! Me will sometimes say to Myself:
Me: You should make a list of things you need from Home Depot today, and then a list of house tasks in order or priority.
Myself: [rubs eyes] wait, wha?
Me: Yes! That is what organized, functional adults do, they make lists! Make a list like that, and then you can add how long you expect each task to take, how much you expect each one to cost, things like that.
Myself: [rolls eyes] hey-- shhhh.
My and Myself both like a different kind of list. Whatever the opposite of useful is, it's that kind of list. A not-useful list. Notably not-useful lists sometimes form themselves in my general vicinity, and they often involve comparisons of one thing to another. I'll find myself realizing-- oh my gosh, this thing is like that thing! And so:
Ways In Which a Interior Paint is Like a Contractor
- Both can have a big influence on the way a room turns out.
- Both may benefit from being 'primed,' as it were.
- It's important to have one you like, but you won't know if you like it/him/her until you give it/him/her a try, and all this trying can be, well, trying.
- Both are really boring to watch dry.
