I was cleaning my house today; Tiding up since my roommates are pigs, putting my computer back together after testing a few things out on it and I was reminded about how nice it is to have things as they should be. I pride myself on my organizational skills, it's helped me be successful in my career as well as well instilled a certain amount of discipline that can be applied to other parts of my life, which needs no arguing for as beneficial. It's also has a very calming effect that others who enjoy cleaning can attest to. When I lived by myself, nothing was ever out of order for too long or in a great abundance. With piggy friends though, the trash and muck and fuck can really pile up quickly. It makes me want to avoid certain areas of the house sometimes. When things aren't right in the house, it feels like things are right in the head. Personally, If my room is messy, I won't be able to go to bed, the thought of my shit being out of order will drive me nuts. Getting things back to whats normal for me is the only thing I can do relax.
We can see this exactly mentality in 905's Dale To The Chief, not only with the True Hank but with his best friend Dale. Hank's new driver's license comes in and it says that he is a female. Hank will spend the rest of the episode doing anything he can, from asking nicely to threatening a Department of Public Services employee to return his license to say male. Dale, while reading terrifying Joseph a bedtime story, learns he was mistaken about a detail in the JFK assassination and that everything now makes sense that LHO did it. This sends Dale on a bunch of gags where he loves the fucking feds. This ends up making Dale even crazier since he turns his paranoia instead to Hank actually being a woman since his paranoia had to go somewhere. In the end, Dale ends up distrusting the federal government again and Hank's license says that he's a man, though Dale's help (THANK DALE!!!), thus returning both of their lives to what they consider normal.
I beg ye children, return to what's normal for you. If you've gone off from your normal site, return to what's normal. If you're shoe's aren't the right size, return to what's normal. If you're 4 days deep into AA....return to what's normal.
