All Things Considered

 

All things considered, she had everything she needed.

More than she thought was there, really. More than some might consider necessary.

She leaned back in her chair, then leaned forward to straighten a stray implement. Adjust another.

“Orderly desks make orderly minds,” Papa always said. Pointedly.

She might not manage to get much order in the latter, but she sure could try to tame the chaos of the former.

And it did look better organized, she had to admit.

Now, if only the desk could fill loan applications. Or order funds to her account so she could pay the bills.

    Oy. I fear neither my desk nor my mind will ever be orderly. Too much multitasking…at least there’s a word for it now. 😉 A desk that fills out applications and pays bills…yeah, that would be great. I love this piece and laughed out loud at the end. Thanks. I needed a good laugh.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle
