One-Liner Wednesday — A Round Tuit

IMG_2621

“Someday is not a day of the week.”

Novelist Janet Dailey

My wife maintains a fairly robust “honey do” list. I tend to be a bit of a procrastinator when it comes to checking off the items on her list. When she periodically asks (bugs) me about what progress I’ve made on her list, I’ll often say something like, “I’ll get to it when I get around to it.”

One day she handed me a gift-wrapped box, which I excitedly opened. Inside the box, wrapped in tissue paper, was a wooden coin with the words “A Round Tuit” carved onto it. “What’s this?” I asked.

“You said you’d clean out the garage when you got around to it,” she answered. “So I got you a round tuit. Now you have no excuse.”

The last time she asked me if I’d done any of the tasks on her list, I told her that “I’ll get it done someday.”

She looked at the large calendar hanging in our kitchen and said, “I see Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday, along with a number of other days, but I don’t see Someday. Can you show me where Someday is on this calendar?”

I can imagine novelist Janet Dailey confronting her husband when he tells her that he’ll get around to doing something on her honey do list someday, and throwing “Someday is not a day of the week” in his face.

    I can’t believe she really did that. How wonderful. I knew immediately what the round tuit was. Perhaps I should get some of my honey do list done as well. Thank you again for your marvelous sense of humor.

    Garry is better. He says “Tomorrow, absolutely” then somehow, it’s three days later and … All those years on TV. He’s really good at this.
