This morning for example, I decided it was time to change the sheets on the bed. Now that is a simple and regular chore but I wanted to get it over with as I had something else I wanted to do. I started by putting the fitted sheet on the wrong way so had to take it off again. The top sheet would not line up straight and I put the wrong pillowcase on the wrong pillow. (We have two pillows each so I have another set just for the bottom ones.) I tripped over the bedspread as I was throwing it quickly on the bed and hit my shin on the metal bedstead. Classic, if I had approached this simple job the way I usually do I would have done it so much quicker.A proverb is a simple and concrete saying popularly known and repeated, which expresses a truth, based on common sense or the practical experience of humanity.
