Mr. Belding would totally give me detention for this.

Sometimes when people rave about something, I get annoyed and avoid it on principle. I always end up relenting and loving the thing WAY late when everyone else is over it.

This is not that situation.

Sometimes someone tells me I should do something and I refuse because I can't be bothered or I don't want to deal with it. It just seems like too much work for the reward I will get.

This is also not that situation.

Sometimes I just procrastinate things. There is always tomorrow. Tomorrow Erratic will handle it. Or maybe the day after that.

This is also not that situation.

Sometimes I am just an idiot. And nobody really tells me that I should do something, I just innately know, hey, you should do this. Why haven't you done this? And I just don't do it. It isn't even procrastinating. It is just a complete lack of interest in said thing.

This is totally that situation.

I used a hands free headset on my iPhone for the first time today. No, not the first time on my iPhone. THE FIRST TIME EVER. ON ANY PHONE.

I live in 1998 and someone should just hand me a Zach Morris phone and be done with it.

Usually when I am doing something that requires both hands, I either get off the phone or put the person on speaker phone. It's not like I talk on the phone THAT much. But, I usually talk on the phone in my car which is the WORST place to not use hands-free. 

Today, I was on the phone with Tini and I wanted to walk Short Dog. But I wasn't done talking to Tini. And I knew my energy would fade and I would just procrastinate walking him until the boy came home and he did it. Wait, that isn't procrastination, is it? Hm.

So, I said, hey, I am going to dig out that hands free headset that I CARRY EVERYWHERE WITH ME.

That really is the worst part, isn't it? That it is always with me and I simply can't be bothered to use it. 

I get it out, I plug it in, and voila. Hands free. I walked the dog. I made dinner. I cleaned the bathroom. I dusted the living room. YOU GUYS. It was like having a friend go everywhere with you while you get shit done. LOVED. IT.

I realize that all of you are like, well, yeah. I mean, we have known this since 2004 when everyone else figured it the fuck out. Also, here is your giant flip phone, you idiot. 

I deserve that.
