Today's One-Minute Writing Prompt: Servants
If you had servants available to tend to your every need, what tasks would you still insist on doing yourself?
Ah, I don't really need a "servant", because I wouldn't want someone doing "everything" for me. I am totally capable of bathing and grooming myself, driving to and from work, and paying my bills. But I would like to have a housekeeper and organizer. I don't enjoy cleaning or washing dishes, so these are areas I lack when it comes to domestic skills.
However, I would not want someone to clean my library - I have my books organized the way I want them and I am very protective of all my books. I would also not want anyone to organize my writing, because this is a very personal area for me.
The other area I don't won't someone to take care of is my yard and gardens, although I would appreciate some help taking care of the one-acre property. I have such grand visions for my gardens, but I lack the muscle power and energy to accomplish much at a time.
But who (or is it whom) am I kidding? I will never be able to afford any type of domestic help, so I'll keep muddling through the best way I know how.
