The Architect



I’m a complete contradiction unto myself. Given a situation, oh let’s see, how about we start with the driveway.

1.If the driveway is covered with snow and I need to get somewhere I will..

A. bundle up against the arctic winds and tackle Mt. Everest with salt and shovel until I can safely pass the summit with my minivan.

B. completely forfeit any ambitions that lay outside the threshold of my front door.

C. Both

2. If the children are being quiet by watching a movie and the house is a mess, but I need to get some work done, I will….

A. allow them to continue to bask in their coma-like state in order to assure that I won’t be disrupted and therefore all things are peacful.

B. cringe at their slothfulness, pull out my whip and start cracking it while yelling orders and demanding a reply of ,”Yes Mam, Mother Mam!” while stressing about getting my work done.

C. Both

3.Since I really shouldn’t eat sugar in order to maintain a healthy mind and body..

A. I eat only whole grain foods and avoid all processed sugar.

B. I desperately cram discarded half eaten candy that my children leave lying on the floor, counter, top of the trash or under the car seats into my mouth and pretend like I’m not eating anything, but rather having a coughing fit.

C. Both

You see where this is going? If you chose C for all the answers, you are a genius and also must have a strange insight into my world.
