Pay the light bill, the phone bill, the mortgage, pay the insurance, pay your car payment. Renew your licence, renew your passport. Make an eye appointment. A medical appointment. Have your regular pap test, have your regular teeth cleaning. File your taxes, file away your papers, file your receipts. Renew your registration on your vehicle, renew your registration on your professional license. Check your mail, read your mail, throw away unnecessary mail. Take out the trash, sweep your floors, wash your floors, wash your bathroom, do the dishes, the laundry. Deposit cheques, mail cheques, etc, etc, etc.
And in amongst all of that, don’t forget to live your life.
That laundry will still be there. But that moment, well, it’s gone forever.
