As I watched Tiger Woods sink a birdie putt (before his most recent surgery) to thunderous applause and as I applauded my son for putting the blue square in the square hole, I fantasized about how awesome it would be for most of us to receive applause on a daily basis for doing our jobs well.
Can you imagine?
Mommy, great job on the laundry! Really nice creases!
Glen, great job on that expense report! You really attached those receipts well!!
Don't worry...I'm not suggesting that these "accomplishments" are even in the same universe as what Tiger or our babies do. I'm just saying...it's a nice fantasy, isn't it?
