Applying oneself


When I was a lad, I regularly encountered the refrain: "If only he would apply himself!"

Look at me applying myself now! 

I bet they never suspected... this!

If I apply myself I can put a cart of fiction in order in two minutes!

If I apply myself I can shelve that whole cart of fiction in twelve minutes!

Doing this frees me up to...

Put more fiction in order.

And also to...

Shelve more fiction.

So I have learned to apply myself. And you might want to apply yourself too.


Choose carefully.

Oh my god. Choose carefully.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
