A Time To Every Purpose

Mensa, the genius people, offer quiz’s that allow you to determine your level of genius from the comfort of home. You have my permission to store the information in this post in your subconscious mind for later use, should you ever find yourself with a Mensa quiz in hand. You are welcome.

This all stems from advise a dear friend once gave me at a time when I was overwhelmed with the load I carry. Her advise was:

“Just put your pants on one leg at a time.”

This is simple, yet profound advise. I must have been trying to jump into my pants with both legs. I’m lucky I didn’t break my neck… or tear my pants.
I would like to expound on the variables of this advice:

•Put your pants on before your belt
•Socks before shoes
•Pants on before shoes
•Underwear before pants and shoes
•Shirt before tie, but after bra (for women)
•Deodorant before shirt
•Wash hair before styling
•Brush teeth before applying lipstick
•Out of bed before making it
•Make sure children are in the car before you drive them to school

I like, on occasion, to fly by the seat of my pants, let caprice and free will take control. That just isn’t wise when one considers what the outcome might be:

•Belt before pants- pants on the ground
•Shoes before socks- sweaty feet
•Shoes before pants- could get trapped
•Underwear after pants and shoes- see above
•Bra after shirt and tie- didn’t Madonna do this?•Deodorant after shirt- messy and ineffective
•Styling hair, then washing it- not pretty
•Brushing teeth after applying lipstick- smears
•Making bed before you’re out of bed- may make getting out of bed difficult
•Driving children to school before they are in the car- could lead to truancy

So, as the lyrics in the song, which were taken from a Bible verse say:
“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven.”
Ecclesiastes 3:1 / Pete Seeger

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received that you wouldn’t give to anyone else? Why don’t you think it would apply to others?

  1. I had a different thought in mind when I read the last advice re: driving kids to school. For me, it’s make sure they are in the car. I’ve been known to drive off and forgetting to load the kids!
