Me: Goldilocks tried Baby Bear's porridge and it was just right. So she ate it all up.
E: Then she took the bowl to the sink!

Miss Spoken Goes Out

So I went shopping with E along Arab Street and two steps into a bead shop, she dragged me out. "You have so many things in your room already!"

Next time, she's staying home.

Miss Spoken Speaks Up

Me: What colour do you want to colour the dog?
E: Err, blue!
Me: Okay … but have you ever seen a blue dog?
E: Yes!
Me: A real dog?
E: No …
Me: So do you still want to colour this blue?
E: But this isn't a real dog!

Mommy bring me to school

E: Don't take bus.
Me: Shall we walk? Use our legs?
E: Don't use legs. Use backside.
Me: Why? How?
E: Put on the chair.
Me: What chair?
E: My chair, in your car, behind your seat.

Spurious precision.

Current Read

An interesting read, thanks to hubby for spotting it. My thoughts:

You put in time and effort and use company resources, materials and know-how to make products which, after the company sells them, bring in revenue used to compensate for your time and effort. And maybe the company might throw in some employment benefits for good measure.

You transform your skills, know-how and connection into services and products using company imposed infrastructure and resources which are not necessarily built with your interest in mind. In fact these may be some cumbersome that you have to expend resourcefulness and skills to work around them.

How can work give you the ROI for your assets without undermining your productivity through useless rules, tools and fools?
