Bloganuary: How do you show love?
These final week prompts are getting a little personal.
I don’t know how true this is, but the first thing that came to mind was I do things for the people I love.
But not big things.
I’d be terrible at throwing someone a surprise party. Sure, I’d be able to keep it a secret. But, if you’re of an age, you may remember The Mary Tyler Moore Show. You may remember Mary Richards and her inability to throw a party.
I make Mary Richards look like Martha Stewart. I’m assuming Martha can throw a party.
People, wait. Wait. I just Googled Martha Stewart and discovered she had a reality show with Snoop Dog called Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party. How did I miss this? Okay, I’m going with yes. Yes, Martha (and Snoop) can definitely throw a party.
Anyway, we’ve established I’m not throwing a party for anyone. (And really, how can you compete with Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party?) But everyday things? Like making someone a cup of tea or finding their lost keys? That’s totally me.
In fact, if you’ve lost your keys, give me a call.
I might be able to find them—along with your missing homework assignment, the jazz shoes you need for dance class (the black, not the tan), and your favorite T-shirt.
However, if it’s a party you want, you’ll need to consult Martha and Snoop.
One response to “Martha Stewart, Snoop Dog, Mary Richards, and me”
I dunno… a party with Martha & Snoop sounds like something that would be all about them and the cool things they can do.
Doing things for others? That takes attention. And attention, in my book, is the foundation for all things wonderful and loving.
