Getting Around To It

What are you waiting for?Some times it’s easier than other times. Sometimes it’s just hard.

I remember the first time I saw one of these. I was nine or ten, and visiting the neighbor lady’s house. She had it lying on her kitchen table, and I asked her what it was.

“Well, what does it say?”
“’Here is your round tuit.’ What’s a tuit?”
”Read it again.”
”Ohhhh… I see!”

I think that was the first time I understood what a “play on words” was. I remember being thrilled and feeling smart.

I wish being thrilled, feeling that smart, and getting things done was as easy as finding one of these.

What do you think?
