A To-Do List


A To-Do List

— ask Allie what color her room is
— decorate locker
— go to pool
— wash t-shirt

My 10-year-old son found the above list in his library book. He showed it to me and we laughed and laughed. There is just something about finding other people’s lists — I just like it. Other people’s agenda can be quite interesting. Like the time I found the list that Jon’s centenarian aunt had made before a very special dinner and left in the cookbook that I inherited. I’m not sure, but I think that Aunt Jenny must have had a very exceptional meal that night. And, Jon and I agreed that if the above list was our list, well, we’d knock it out in like 5 minutes and spend the rest of the day drinking sweet tea or maybe margaritas.


  1. I envy that to-do list.

  2. FOUND Magazine

    Folks from the magazine come through here once in a while, and they can deliver some entertaining shows.

  3. Oooh, Valerie, I love #44. That is my life growing up — my dad was a pharmacist, and phone messages and grocery lists were always associated with bizarre diseases. Looking back, it’s pretty funny to think of my very strait-laced parents having notepads emblazoned with things like “vaginal suppositories” lying all over their house, though it never really struck me until now.
