So most people watch Disney films and they find a character they connect to. Disney princess:
Maybe an animal:
Now that Star Wars is in the Disney family it opens more choices:
But sadly no. Since living on my own, I have discovered that the Disney character I am most like is the Mad Hatter.
So first of all I’m not mad from Mercury poisoning.
*whew* I know you are all relieved to hear that. And no it isn’t how he dresses, although I love wearing hats.
It’s not even his love of tea-which I do share
It’s his mess of tea cups everywhere.
The table was a large one, but the three were all crowded together at one corner of it: ‘No room! No room!’ they cried out when they saw Alice coming. ‘There’s plenty of room!’ said Alice indignantly, and she sat down in a large arm-chair at one end of the table…
‘And ever since that,’ the Hatter went on in a mournful tone, ‘he won’t do a thing I ask! It’s always six o’clock now.’
A bright idea came into Alice’s head. ‘Is that the reason so many tea-things are put out here?’ she asked.
‘Yes, that’s it,’ said the Hatter with a sigh: ‘it’s always tea-time, and we’ve no time to wash the things between whiles.’
‘Then you keep moving round, I suppose?’ said Alice.
‘Exactly so,’ said the Hatter: ‘as the things get used up.’
That’s my apartment. Now, I’m not saying that I’m a total slob, it’s just I’ve noticed that since living on my own 70% of my dishes are tea cups/mugs.
So as you can see-when it comes to dirty dishes 70% of them are tea cups/mugs. I also live in a very small apartment with a tiny sink, so as to not damage my cups/mugs they tend to line the counter next to the sink.
The real problem comes if I miss a day washing the dishes. Then oh no-it really looks like the Mad Hatter’s tea party.
How ’bout you all? Do you have this problem?
