Sometimes, the list-makers and project doers of the world are kind of like the baloney sandwiches in the deli of life.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Baloney sandwiches are staples. And Lord knows we need staples. Staples stand for stability and the very stuff that keeps the earth spinning on an axis and not into the ether.
Thing is, Dana, author of Kiss My List blog, is a list-maker. A project do-er.
But she also got a cup and a half of that bold, disruptive spice that puts a lot of color in bland spreadsheets. She’s like that grab-bag of toys at the dollar store, only the surprise you get when you rip open the staples isn’t busted pieces of dollar-store toys no one wanted to buy in the light of day.
I bond with most of you over stuff like, say, bacon.
Or baseball. Or, just being a parent. It’s a pretty cool gig.
Kathy Radigan, the author of My Dishwasher’s Possessed blog, has three kids, just like me. But the big bond is the fact that we both had that moment in our lives when we had to come to grips with the reality we might lose our fathers.
