It's a small thing. The boot in the hallway. How did it get there? I don’t know. That doesn't really matter. The real question is - how long is it going to stay? As of now, that boot has been in the hall for two days. It is an important hallway, we can't get anywhere in the house without going through it. Yet, I continue to step over it daily, (and clearly others are too). Don’t get me wrong - other things are getting done. My work is done, laundry's done, dishes r done. But the boot continues to stay there. I take it as a sign that I need a break. Margarita’s anyone?
