Growing up, I only watched a few episodes of “Bewitched” but a scene where she twitches her nose and the house magically becomes clean has stayed in my memory for years. Hollywood is filled with extraordinary superheroes and magic powers. Yet, at the end of the day I don’t want x-ray vision, the ability to fly, and I definitely don’t want to read people’s minds! I want to twitch my nose and have everything organized and clean.
There always comes a point in the month when my drive home from work is accompanied by a sharp twinge of anxiety. I know those dishes will be waiting for me, just staring at me until I clean them. I can’t escape to the bedroom because the suitcase from last week’s trip will be begging to be unpacked. Usually heading home at the end of a work day is a time to relax, but not when you have loads of laundry to be washed and folded, counters to clean, and dishes to do. It’s days like today that I want to keep on driving past my exit to anywhere but home.
I have twitched my nose after walking into my messy closet countless times. Although I know it’s ridiculous, it doesn’t change the fact that I would give just about anything to have that power. If you’re like me, juggling a busy life with zero superpowers, read this week’s communication!
