5 Minute Friday Funny-Growing Roots (aka Butt Plant Syndrome)

TGIF!!  Yes, Thank Goodness it’s Friday! (Five Minute Friday that is).  Who is ready for a laugh today ( I did a comedic twist for today’s post).  The rules are you are supposed to write whatever comes to mind with the special word of the day.  No over thinking, or over editing.  Just pure writing flowing out however it wants to.  The other super important rule is that you can’t be all about yourself here…you are supposed to visit the person who wrote before you and leave a comment.  After all, that is what community is all about!

Today’s secret word was “Roots”  (for other 80’s children out there…does the word of the day ever make you think of the show Pee-Wee’s play house? Or maybe it’s just me…. 🙂 )




Have you ever had one of those days where you lack motivation?

Everything seems overwhelming..too much to be done,

Too many excuses (some of them true!):

An “I’m too tired”, or an “I am too busy”.

Or a “Hey- it’s really important that I finish looking at these mail order catalogs!”-

after all- I am “sorting” out garbage (so really I AM cleaning )..and that is CRITICAL!

You have a pile of dishes in the kitchen sink…

A pile of laundry on the laundry room floor…

Maybe some laundry sitting in the washer that never made it in the dryer (mildew anyone?)

Or some laundry sitting there in the dryer getting all wrinkly!

There are floors to sweep…

Bathrooms to clean…

Meals to cook…

Pets to feed…

Litter to scoop…

Bills to do…

The list is endless.

Meanwhile what am I doing?

“Growing roots”.

Yup!  That is what they say-

“You are growing roots again!”

I call it “Butt plant Syndrome”  😀

You know…that incurable disease where you can’t seem to get out of the chair?

It’s like there is some invisible super glue stuck to your rear that you just can’t seem to get rid of.

(Darn those makers of Super Glue! It’s all their fault!!)

But there are more important things to do….

Like blog posts to write 🙂

Knitting projects to do

Emails to check

Phone calls to make

People to entertain (Hey, someone’s got to do it! Being part of the spread a smile committee is a VERY important job!)

And hey- all of these things require “Roots” , right?

They require you to stay put to get them done (except maybe the entertainer one)

Unless you are some super multi tasker who can type or talk with one hand

and do laundry and sweep with the other…

But much to my chagrin , my Super Hero cape has been on back order for a long time-

Customer service tells me they can’t keep them in stock, but not to despair because I am not the only woman who is on a very long wait list.  😉

I am hoping that since the “cape” is out of the question at the moment,

That I can a least get a tube of  “Glue be Gone” for the ole’ Derriere.

Yes, today was one of those days where I was “Growing Roots” again…

But that’s ok…

Because according to Scarlett O’Hara,

“After all, tomorrow is another day!”

That leaves me with 2 questions for you:

1.  Is your cape on back order too?

2.  Do you happen to have a tube of “Glue be Gone” lying around..and if so can I borrow some ? 😉
