Running errands for parents (the life of a post-grad)

Unless you’re one of those kiddos who, fresh out of the college bullpen, had a flag of employment waving in front of your face, you’re probably quietly returned to your ancestral home and eking out an existence on your parents’ dime. I am one of those ekers. And what I had forgotten is that as long as you are at home, you are a child who will be at the beck and call of the ‘rents. Today, before noon, I had already managed an errand for not only my mother but daddy dearest, as well. And since an excuse like “Ohh, I’m planning on staying up all night watching celebrity interview clips on YouTube so I won’t be up before noon” isn’t an excuse, I hopped in the car and picked up sandwiches for a lunch meeting. But, as a result I brushed my teeth and washed my face before half the day was spent–productivity win.
