It was an ordinary day. I was working at home, pushing papers. i went to the kitchen to reload my Swingline stapler. There were four boxes of staples in the top right drawer. I picked up each box; they were mostly full. Three boxes of 5,000, plus a box of 2,000 multi-colored staples. I couldn't remember the last time I bought a box. And yet I owned about 16,000 staples.

It was right there that i faced my mortality. I thought, "I will die before I use all these staples." I had a vision of someone cleaning out this drawer sometime down the road, and saying "Did she really think she was going to use all these staples?"

I bet many people die with a good supply of staples.

Miss Blogworthy is a self employed writer and producer who often dreams of becoming a teacher (for the vacations) or a police officer (for the pension), but never a dentist. She has two daughters, but has never been very good at doing hair. Miss Blogworthy, formerly Mrs. Blogworthy, has just stepped out of her 20 year marriage, and is eager to see where that leads.

Read along as Miss B shares thoughts on parenting, fashion, work, food, pop culture, etc. As you can see, she is quite smitten by the spectacle of life, both the mundane and celebrated, and she likes writing in third person.

Compassionately yours,

Miss Blogworthy
