The Odd Couple

We live within walking distance of Boise Little Theater—Idaho’s longest running, all volunteer, community theater, where local thespians tread the boards.

Do you remember the television show The Odd Couple? When our little theater presented the female version, we couldn’t pass it up. In this gender-reversed rendition:

  • Oscar Madison is replaced by Olive Madison.
  • Felix Unger is replaced by Florence Unger.
  • The Pidgeon sisters are replaced by the Constanzuela brothers.

Instead of the poker party that kicks-off the original version, the curtain opens to Olive Madison’s messy living room where the girls have arrived for an evening of Trivial Pursuit.

Each of us has tendencies:
Some — like Oscar and Olive Madison — lean toward easygoing, creative disarray.
Others — like Felix and Florence Unger — lean toward fastidious, apple-pie order.

Which way do you lean?

From To-Do to Ta-Dah!

I believe it’s just as important to be positive, uplifting, constructive, and healing to myself as it is to others. Fastidious by nature, I’m one of those people who thrives on lists—especially checking items off!

Humor, laughter, and having fun is of equal significance to me—just ask anyone who’s experienced one of my presentations or classes. When it comes to getting things done I make it fun!

Instead of a “to do” list, I have a Ta-Dah! list. This tiny shift in perspective makes me feel like I can take on anything. The photo below is of my laptop’s screen (click on image to enlarge). It never fails to make me smile.
