The One With the Dead Yak

Every day is full of decisions. It starts before I even get up. Turn off the alarm or hit the snooze? Say my prayers or forget? Cap’n Crunch or Reese’s Peanut Butter Puffs? Exercise or play on the computer? Curly or straight(er)? And then the real fun begins. There are about fifty different things I should get done today. Which of them do I do? They aren’t all going to fit. It reminds me of my favorite bit from Brian Regan, the comedian, where he is talking about trying to jam something in the overhead compartment on an airplane. You have this much room, and you have a DEAD YAK. That is my day. I’ve got this much room, and a dead yak.

However, it’s my dead yak. It’s all things I want to do. Even if I have to cut it up into a hundred little pieces, I am going to shove it into the compartment. And if I can’t fit it all in today, then I’ll work on it tomorrow. And I’m still going to find time for dinner with a friend. Even if it is a cold dead fish head. Served with a turnip. And a spork. ☺

OK, that was funny.

I can't stand standing behind the people trying to carve up the YAK though. Just pack lighter.

OK, my verification word:

That's the people in front of me trying to pack the yak into the compartment.

I thought the same thing about the spork. I recently got some flatware for the office because I got tired of plastic cutlery.

I feel like I have that dilemma every night after the kids go to bed. I have this much time and I have to figure out what I can get done even though I have THIIIIS much to do. :)
Love Brian Regan
