Maybe it's because I'm taking a lot more pictures and noticing the smallest details especially when I have to edit more pictures than not?
You know that old saying, "Measure Twice - Cut Once"? I think I need to start paying more attention to that as I think I would waste a lot less paper, etc. Today I was cutting a piece of paper and although everything looked OK it actually looked terrible!
I can also equate that saying to a lot of other areas in my life, like 'think before speaking', 'proof read before hitting send', or as I'm keenly aware of this morning, 'eating food before drinking wine'.
My problem with getting it straight appear in so many other things other than just cutting paper, for example, I've learned that cutting my bangs is a challenge better suited for a hair stylist..
Mounting things on walls is better done by a handyman..
Taking pictures and hanging them is best when done with a straight hand..
I even have problems finding suitable glasses that fit straight on my face.. Maybe my eyes are crooked or the bridge of my nose is my problem?
I can never seem to get things straight it seems, not even stories or jokes! I suppose I can relate to the old nursery rhyme..
There was a crooked manI think I have found a cure though for my crooked ways. First, I will only use pinking shears for cutting.
Who walked a crooked mile.
He found a crooked sixpence
Against a crooked stile.
He bought a crooked cat
Which caught a crooked mouse,
And they all lived together
In a crooked little house.
And, for everything else, well, I'll just tilt my head as the world looks straighter already!
So, tell me how do you keep things straight? Do you "Measure Twice and Cut Once"?
