Let’s say you’re going to have a dinner party. Grown-up like.
But for 8 people, you can only think of 7 chairs. And that includes:
1) Two real chairs with cat hair-infused cushions
2) Two green plastic patio chairs
3) One computer chair
4) One stool from your vanity
5) One small step ladder
Do you pull out the huge rubbermaid container full of action figures, throw a pillow on it, and call it chair #8? Will your friends find it charming, the dinner a success, and be amazed at your “can-do” attitude?
Or, will your friends pity the tacky chairs, the slightly burnt rice, and the frantic look in your eyes?
Shut up darling. Because they love you no matter what. Convince yourself to do the same and then you’ve accomplished something.
