not crazy at all
January 24, 2013
Yay me. I have discovered a new permutation of the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle. My last discovery centered around the su . . . er, around the process of drying oneself after a shower.
In a nutshell, the discovery was this: You can dry yourself in order, but you can’t KNOW the order of the drying. Simple, yet crazy.
So last night, I was leaving work, got in the elevator, which was a bit crowded and cramped, and then tried to put on my jacket.
Well, I was blocked to my right, so I put on the left sleeve first. And then I froze. “Ahhh! I can’t find my other sleeve. I’m trapped in my jacket, help.”
Bile rising, panic setting in, I bit my lip until we reached the ground floor and I could burst into the hallway and take off my left sleeve, and put on my jacket properly, right sleeve first. I hesitate to describe the process for fear of violating Dug’s Uncertainty Principle, but it’s like this:
- right arm in.
- swing jacket around the back, while left hand reaches behind looking for the armhole.
- push left arm through.
- shrug the jacket up to the shoulders.
See? Perfectly rational. Not crazy at all.
Just don’t screw it up.
