. . . to use Ferris Beuller's Day Off being on AMC (which, suddenly, is an unavailable channel) as your excuse to FINALLY hook up all that stupid digital upgrade crap from Comcast that's been sitting in boxes for, like, four months.
. . . if you want to have an air horn handy when you answer work-related phone calls.
. . . if you put on makeup during the week (when you know nobody is going to see you) just because it actually seems to keep the pimples at bay. (Not full-out makeup—just a barrier.)
. . . to know that your kid is hanging out on a ledge that's 3.5 feet off the ground and not run over there to stop him. After all, you know you could be sitting there all day removing him from that ledge 'cause that little bugger's going to go right back up there. (When you're a mom/dad one day, you'll find yourself alarmingly unfazed about things that would've freaked you out if you were on the "outside, looking in.")
Nora's telling me to get him down. She's concerned.
. . . if some of your big, life challenges involve keeping your kid from: (1.) shutting down your computers (work and personal) at inopportune times and (2.) diving into the toilet.
. . . if "Hey, It's Okay Tuesday" is your rare mental break from the pavement-pounding lifestyle you seem to be leading this past week and a half. (Work has been brutal.)
