Programmed...

Today I am going to the podiatrist, so what did I do? I shaved my legs. It was an autopilot type of decision. I was in the shower and I thought, Oh yeah, must shave legs, going to podiatrist.

I shave my legs rather infrequently because, though I love the feeling of having shaved legs, it seems like a lot of time spent for a short-lived return. I could use that time doing so many other, more productive things, like putting away the dry silverware from the dish rack. So imagine my shock when I realized halfway through calf #2 (yes, I did only shave from the knee down)that I was doing all of this for my podiatrist!

Now the real question is, Would I have shaved even if I hadn't made the decision almost unconsciously? Would I insist on hiding hair from my foot doctor after this whole thought process about how ridiculous this behavior is? The answer: Yes. I'm shaking my head in disappointment at myself as I type. So there you have it folks, I'm a conformer after all.

Love this post! I had a similar dilemma this morning, but chose the extra 10 minutes of sleep So, does that make me a non-conformist or just plain lazy? :o) Too funny!
