I do take an active roll in changing the things that need to be changed. What a lot of people don’t know about me is that before I come to (generic) you for advice, I’ve already mulled it over in my own brain.
I’ve already made flow charts and bar graphs and Venn Diagrams and complex thought maps…by the time my potential adviser has heard from me, I already know what won’t work and why it won’t work. So if you suggest something I’ve considered before, I will tell you “Yeah, but…” and you will probably think I’m an excuse engine, because you don’t know me well enough to know how my mind works.
The loving family member who told me to get a job like it was a cakewalk told me I should get a job making excuses because I’m good at that.
“That’s a great idea!” I said, “I should run for Congress on the Republican ticket!”
Lorrie Morgan–Except for Monday, which was never good anyway; Tuesday, I get a little sideways; Wednesday, I feel better, just for spite; Thursday and Friday take too long; before I know it, Saturday’s gone; but it’s Sunday now, and you can bet that I’m alright.
