O is for Octopus



I'm feeling a little Overwhelmed so I'm being resourceful lazy and reposting my O post from last year. If you've seen it before, humor me and read it again. If you've not seen it, well...here you go.



I want to be an octopus. No, really I do. To have eight arms—eight! Imagine the possibilities. I could type four novels at the same time. I could pour milk, make breakfast, pack lunches, and tie up the garbage—all at once! I could write an example on the white board, type functions into the calculator, write up that kid texting in the corner—and sign two bathroom passes.




What would be even better—if they were Elasti-girl stretchy arms.

Eight arms would be great, right? Or eight legs. I’d even take eight eyes on the back of my head. Or eight clones—now THAT would be cool.

So, how about YOU? Feeling overwhelmed lately? What would you like eight of?

  2. Uh, can I have eight people on a personal staff? Two chefs (one savory, one pastry), a housekeeper, a nanny, a gardener, a masseuse, a sylist, and a driver at my beck-and-call. That's not too much to ask, is it? :)

  3. I wouldn't mind having eight arms, but having eight assistants sounds pretty good, too! :)

  5. Eight extra days in each month would help.^_^ I've always wondered what life would be like if those blank boxes at the bottom of calendars really existed.

  6. I've always said I need to be Kali, the multiarmed Indian god, so that I could do several craft projects at once!

    Great post, Alison! (and I think a timeless one so you could use it again next year!)
