tidying the untidy

Some spots of this house are very untidy. Places where everybody dumps everything. The chest of drawers are for toys, books, remotes, shop receipts and other pocket paraphernalia. The kitchen table is for the post, newspapers (which I really would love to read),  free supermarket magazines with what seem yummy recipes, children’s books,  and school letters. The fridge door is with letters for hospital appointments, as if I couldn’t think of a better place for them. This disarray from time to time disappears, only to reappear straight after.

I have mastered to not step on toys left on the floor. While before I would tidy them into their respective places, now I just put them up on chairs, benches, tables, or whatever available surface that is not the floor.  Before I would also make everything disappear before visitors would turn up – but now we just celebrate that we are in child territory.

marvellous idea

Radio discussion about pre-nuptial contracts: a listener called in saying that “pre-nuptial contracts don’t work because at the end everything is contested!” (love english humor!). But another listener called in saying that wedding contracts should not be for life but only for five years. No joke, he was serious. Shebang – what a marvellous idea! Gosh, how come no one ever though about this one before. As I never wanted to get married, and am not married, this to me would be the perfect solution. After five years, if both parts would wish, the “contract” could be extended.

It would only rip benefits, I thought, no more contested divorces and fat divorce fees (one doesn’t want to divorce, the other just waits for the contract to finish); and a possibility of a party every five years?

****

I think this is so sad, because the bride seems to pay more attention to her newly found “friends” than to the groom.
