Something has happened…
I think I may have gotten old.
For the first time – EVER – IN MY WHOLE LIFE – I have purchased a stool.
It is a really nice stool. It folds, it is light, and so on.
Actually spending money on one has forced to me consider the true meaning of a stool and its purpose in this great big universe. I had never before taken the time to really stop and consider what a stool represented.
If it is used to stand on and to reach things, then I suppose it is simply a tool – a thing to be valued.
I wanted one to sit on while I work.
That can only mean one thing….
I am old.
Or, I suppose, it could mean that I am lazy.
It could mean that I am old AND lazy.
Oh my goodness….
I’ve always been lazy – nothing new there – and never had a stool. It is the OLD that has happened recently…
