Do you play the lottery? If you do, then you may be familiar with the “Pick 3.” Here in Texas, the Pick 3 “offers a 50-cent play, six days a week, and a top prize of $500 (on a $1 play)”—just pick three single-digit numbers and how you want to play them.
Now, I’m not much of a lottery player, but I do feel as though I play the Pick 3 some mornings. Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays to be exact, when my hubby, Little G, and I are all hustling to get out the door by 7:30 a.m. Stanton to work, Little G to preschool, and me to—well, if you asked my daughter, she would either (a) simply stare at you, or (b) say, “write stories.” “Write stories” it is, friends.
On these mornings, I have time to pick three of the following:
- Take a shower.
- Get dressed.
- Drink coffee.
- Eat breakfast.
- Brush teeth.
- Check and respond to e-mails.
- Clean up the kitchen.
Three things. Not one more. And the three things I always pick are the first ones: (1) shower, (2) clothes, and (3) coffee.
Because, breakfast? Well, that’s what tote-friendly granola bars are for. And toothbrushes and toothpaste can travel, too.
E-mails? Easy to do from my phone on the go.
Meanwhile … clean up the kitchen? Simply put: Not a priority. 🙂
When you have to pick, what do you choose?
