      ( 9:38 AM ) teahouse
 
Thank You

My housekeeper, R, came over on Sunday and whipped my place into shape again.

She has accused me of deliberately being messier, because I know she'll clean up after me.

I confess it's true.

She did give me a lovely Christmas present, though - a nice bottle of wine.

She explained, "I always give my employers something to eat or drink for Christmas. Otherwise, if I give them some knick-knack present, then it's just another damn piece of crap I have to find somewhere to put when I clean."

That is so beautiful in its clarity.

Last night I worked until 9, then came home through the cold and drank half the bottle while watching reruns of Law and Order.

Oh, and I made sure to leave some dirty clothes lying on the bathroom floor for R. I'm considerate that way.

What a life.
