When I was a child, I had a strange habit of wearing this really ugly brown felt hat when my mom would make me clean my room. It was kind of a ritual. Occasionally, I would put on another kind of hat, accessories, whatever I came across in the cleaning process. By then end, I would be sporting an interesting look, but have fairly clean room in the process. The other day, I was cleaning my apartment and realized that I really haven't changed all that much. By the end of the cleaning spree, I had on this fire red, orange and gray silk scarf that I never wear, earrings that I discovered in a bag, and some charcoal colored eye shadow and red, red lipstick that I had forgotten about. It was a lovely look, really! It just made me remember the felt hat. Also, in making the drawing, I remembered that I had this miniature basketball goal that sat on my garbage can. It was battery operated and would cheer when you successfully got paper in the hoop. I think I could use that kind of positive reinforcement now. Maybe I should get one to put on the clothes hamper in my room now.
