Are Everyday Chores Entitled to Titles?

Celebrate Everyday Chores

Maybe you are naturally efficient when you do your everyday chores. Maybe your everyday chores are more exciting than mine. If so, I’d love to walk a mile in your shoes without stumbling and falling on my face. When I have a fruitful day, I celebrate! Teasing Tiger even!

Everyday chores
Teasing Tiger was part of the fun as I did my everyday chores.

Tuesday, during an unusually productive day, I read a great post by Dianne Gray, one of my favorite authors. She played around with titles for some of her daily adventures and everyday chores called My Week In Titles. As I flew through my week-in-a-day Tuesday, Dianne inspired me and I began giving my activities titles.

Fly-By Chores

Not a day flies by that I don’t have everyday chores.

“Like what?”

“Clever, cute, funny titles. You’d laugh.”

“Uh huh, what?”

“Umm, uh, I don’t remember. That was yesterday. It’s 1:35 am.”

“You call that an excuse? Come on cough them up. Make Dianne proud.”

“I’m grasping at loose straws fluttering across my synapses but here goes.”

Charged Up

Everyday chores
Everyday chores put me at the back of the pack.

Fully amped with vitamins for women 50+ Rhea Ripe raced to town with at least five chores to complete in twenty-five minutes. Rhea nearly succeeded but had to return to town to retrieve the credit card she left at stop number three. While her chicken marinated and her rice cooker steamed, she wisely chose the battery-assisted Prius for the second trip. Fortunately, she also forgot milk and broccoli and thus turned her mistake into an efficient use of two hours.

Everyday Chores call for a strong arm and hammer.

In the days before workouts, Bertha Butts might have asked for help carrying in a case of plastic water bottles, fresh-baked cookies, and a heavy purse. With one successful trip under her belt and some of the bottles missing after the meeting, she put her hand in the hole of the plastic wrap and hoisted the remaining bottles which defied gravity in their open plastic sling. Single-handedly Bertie slung her purse over her shoulder, balanced the cookies in her other hand. Whisking past a group of fifth-grade students watching the older woman with unbelieving eyes, she gleamed at them while flexing her biceps as she efficiently pushed open the heavy office door.

“I am amazing,” B thought just before the plastic wrap holding the bottles together broke and scattered bouncing water bottles over the parking lot.

Put in a Plug for Me


Ms. Darla Dew mulled over business names to impress friends and fellow volunteers with her repertoire of marketable skills. PowerPoint Presentations R Me. That would work. Dew knew her design, carefully copied from a renown local graphic artist, would impress her Kiwanis group. What she failed to consider was that she did not have a cable to connect her computer to the screen at the meeting place. Would anyone see her plucky PowerPoint presentation, or would it loop continuously through cyberspace unseen by appreciative human eyes?

The real experts from Sequoia National Park. They were fabulous presenters.

Are you good at making up names or titles? Or are you like me and just like to try for the fun of it when you can’t sleep at night? Take Dianne’s challenge, (which was not actually a “challenge”) and see what you can create. Describe your week or day in titles. Check out Dianne’s cute post for great ideas. Put a link to your post in my comment box, if you tinker with a thought-thwarting title, you would like to share.

  1. These are awesome, Marsha! I already commented here but something happened and my comment vanished (but I couldn’t see the pictures either so there may have been a technical glitch) 😦 I’m so excited that you put your week-in-a-day Tuesday in titles! If I had to choose my favourite it would be Breakthrough. Well done! 😀


    1. Thank you! You inspired this post 100%. Thanks for the inspiration and the comment. I have no idea about the comments and the pictures, but without pictures, they are not nearly as fun. hmmmm Breakthrough is a great picture.
