What Story Does a Desk Tell


When I was leaving the office the other day I stopped to pick up something I had forgotten. Looking at my desk from that vantage point made me stop and take a photo. I always think you can tell something about people by their desks.

You can probably tell we have a Snoopy exhibit at the moment... or that I love that Beagle. You might also discern I'm a germ freak - especially if I hadn't cropped out the Clorox wipes on the left side of the photo. You might also realize I love color. I recycle whatever paper I can, and that includes those brightly colored flyers for one thing or another.

All you might see is a mess, but there's a system to my messiness - at least for me. I'm not sure anyone else could see it, but I have a system. Of sorts.

Maybe one day I'll be brave enough to post a photo of my desk at home. But not tonight. I'd need to clean it up a bit before doing that. Maybe one day. Maybe.

Satchel Paige said it best ... "Don't ever look back. Something might be gaining on you." in your case Patsy, it's your desk.

Looks perfect to me.

You are never, Never, NEVER allowed near my desk at home with a camera.

I need thirty days and a crew of ten to get to the bottom of it.

My life is similarly disheveled. Gotta bring some disorder into this chaos.

It is a little scary... but I guess I'm just used to it... at least it's colorful.
