Exercises in futility

As the Borg would say: "Strength is irrelevant. Resistance is futile. We wish to improve ourselves. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service ours."


Truth in advertising

So, some of the exercises in futility with which I occasionally entertain myself:

Sweeping the kitchen floor (Mopping? Surely you jest!).

Repeating, “Your sleeve is not a Kleenex.”

Telling brothers not to fight.

Working on a floor puzzle when the baby/toddler is awake.

Putting a clean shirt on the three-year-old.

Putting clean pants on the three-year-old.

Putting anything clean within a five-foot radius of the three-year-old.

Yours?
