Last night I did something I haven’t done for the longest time: I washed my car. Yes, the little Saturn is now a full shade lighter. It had gotten so dirty even I was disgusted. It’s not like we’re under water rationing or anything. I’m just too lazy to wash my car – or even pay someone else to wash it.
No, I couldn’t pay someone else to wash it. I have this idea that if you can do something yourself, you should rather than pay someone else. It took a lot for me to finally break down, several years ago, and hire someone to clean my house on a regular basis. Second best thing I ever did for stress relief.
Best stress relief ever was breaking up with the guy that Kung Fu Kitten works with, lo these many years later.
