Apparently I come from a family of nerds. We’re going on a vacation soon with extended family. Someone sent out a spreadsheet to sign up for what to bring (like lanterns that float in the sky) and meals to cook (like the traditional Christmas dessert that could get me written out of the will for making during the summer). We all got very excited about the spreadsheet. It’s so crisp and clear and organized.
Then I went to my friend’s house who is moving. She has all of her boxes labelled with color coded sticky notes. That made me delirious with excitement. I wanted to run to our nearest office store and come home to label something, anything.
I could say something really philosophical such as, “I lead a life of such uncertainty with Aidan and it’s mostly chaos so I love order when I see it.” I think the truth is just that I come from a family of nerds. I’m good with that.
