Narcissit? Who me?

Tuesday, August 24, 2010


So, this friend of mine has this routine. It's a highly choreographed sequence of dance moves that she practices in the bathroom, every night before she goes to bed. I don't know why she does it, but I really admire her determination, dedication, and what I imagine to be incredible dance skills. Her routine works for her. It strengthens and trains her core dance muscles. It's mine that I'm worried about.

I don't think that my routine is working for me. Sure, I love getting up late, drinking my tea, eating toast and watching The View. Some rituals are sacred. What I am talking about is the problems I have in what I call the "Carpe Diem" segment of my morning. After a shower which takes about 45 minutes, I go into my room and prepare myself to seizing the day. I get dressed. I moisturize. I leave-in-condition. I blow dry, I straighten, and I'm man enough to admit it. But there is this lull I face before I walk out of my room that inevitably has me watching hours of Golden Girls reruns on Youtube.

Does everyone face this problem? Or is it just one faced by only those with too much idol time and no ambition?
