Make Not Ready

This is my work phone. See? It says Taylor K. That is my nombre. 

I have to log into a call queue where people phone in to yell at us. It's super fun. 

Thankfully, we have a magic button that says, Not Ready.

Then our display thing says, Make Not Ready.

And I got to thinking this morning how nice it would be to have a Make Not Ready function for life.

I try to live my life in a way that is ready. 

No, READY. 

Ready to take on new opportunities. Ready to meet new people and experience new things. 

But sometimes, it would be nice to have a Make Not Ready button.

This morning I would have pushed it so that I could stay in bed for another hour or two. Wait, who am I kidding? I would have used it to stay in bed all day. This week, I would have pushed it to give me an extra hour each evening to swim laps or take a yoga class. This month, I would have used it to postpone my mortgage due date. 

What would you use your Make Not Ready button for?

P.S. Phoenix bff is ready to pop. Her baby needs to stop pushing the Make Not Ready button and come out already. WE WANT TO MEET HER! 

Did you hear that, Baby K? 

I'm sorry for yelling at you, but it's time.  

We have lots of nice presents. Come out soon. 

Ok?

I love the Make Not Ready idea. I would make not ready my alarm. I'd make not ready another birthday that is approaching. I'd make not ready my grandparent's ailing. I wish they were healthy and could hang around quite a bit longer.

Thinking of your BFF. Lots of sweet babies arriving this week in my social circle too!

i would sometime like to push the make not ready button to stop you and spanky from growing up. actually not really because i like the grown up yous so very very much. so my button will say "make not big for just an hour or so" them you would magically shrink back to when you were one. but i want you to shrink one at a time so i guess i need two "make not big" buttons. it would be nice to snuggle the little yous again for a while, and smell your sweet baby smells. regarding baby k seriously, its time MISSY. don't make me come in there and get you! perhaps you should got get one of those portable microphone kits and speak loudly into the mic like at disneyland. "please continue moving, at all times, keep your hands and arms closely to your little baby body so you can get out nicer" "please keep pushing pushing pushing. those who exit by this weekend get a chocolate ice cream cone from their grandma sambo" HURRY HURRY (in the circus voice) STEP RIGHT UP
