Obsessive List Makers
Are You An Obsessive List Maker?
I have been a list maker for as long as I can remember. I suppose it started when I was very young. When arriving home from school I would find a list of chores to do, sitting on the kitchen counter, or attached to my bedroom door. I myself would make lists for homework that had to be done, lists for presents that I wanted to buy for people, and lists of letters I needed to write. Writing lists for me is something that I do all the time. I often wonder if there is a name for a compulsive list maker. If there isn't there should be. Maybe something like listaholic or listamany.
This poem was inspired the other day from a comment that RealHousewife left on one of my hubs.
Lists, Lists, Lists
Sometimes These Are What My Heading Say
Things To Do Today
Chores To Try And Complete
Hub Ideas To Write
Grocery Store List
Things To Fix Around The House
Christmas Card List
Presents To Buy For ?
Bills To Pay
Lists for Brainstorming and Packing
Love of Lists
Lists, Lists And More Lists
Lists, lists, lists upon lists
Writing them out I will never miss
They help me to remember
So I do not forget… lists, lists, lists
Lists for groceries when I go to the store
Lists for food in my freezer and more
Christmas cards that I must send
Not forgetting anyone, so not to offend
Stocking stuffer lists on what to get
Check each item off
So that I don’t buy it again
Baking lists of what to make
Must remember to add chocolate cake
Lists I make for the chores to be done
Praying someone else will do just one
Back to school lists I used to make
What each child would have to take
Rulers, calculators, paper and pens
Backpacks, dictionaries, pencils in tens
Erasers, lunch bags, gym shoes too
Shorts from the store Campus Crew
Going on vacation making a list of things to bring
So that I do not forget one single darn thing
Planning a party for ten or more
Making a list for the liquor store
Important numbers are sometimes hard to find
A phone list on the fridge is divine
I even write lists when I am upset or mad
They stop me from screaming or feeling sad
Lists with ideas of things to write
Sometimes hidden and out of sight
As my family at times think I am nuts
For making my lists I say SO WHAT
I find them useful even fun to write
I’ll keep making them day and night
