( 9:38 AM ) teahouse
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. #
