~Let go Mo, Let GO!!!

Hello Everyone! You may know me as "Mel" in Mo's friend world. If you could oblige me for a minute, I would like to take over and give you a little more insight into the world of MO!!!

As we all know, or have gathered, Mo is a little obsessive-compulsive-Virgo-ish most of the time. This is shown in her detailed Blog photos of everything she eats, drinks and likes and dislikes. This brings me to my latest observation. This leads me to the latest detailed account...if you will...

Story:
Monica and I were looking at her neatly chronicled photo albums in her bedroom today. I had a great time making fun of her 90210 (Remember Brenda Walsh)bangs she had in the late 90's til 2001. Good times!!!

Then, as I was walking out of the bedroom I noticed, on her dresser, coin jars. But no, these were no ordinary coin jars.
I said "What the.....!"
Mo said "WHAT!"
I said "You are out of control!"

Ya see folks, most people do have coin jars. Most of us, when we get home...empty our pockets and coin purses and casually drop our bitty coins into our personal collection as we are walking by....not giving it a second thought. Then one day they add up, we go to the nearest Coinstar and CHA CHING...We cash in...and start over. MOST OF US!

BUT...

NEEEEEEOOOOOOOH not Mo! She has 4 JARS, each designated for a certain coin value. (Note: evidence A,B,C & D)
So, this is what separates us from her! Unlike us, she walks into her house after a long day at work or on the road. Instead of casually dropping some coins into a collection jar... she lovingly removes the tops of all 4 jars and sorts out all of her change for the day, week, month. This fulfills all her O.C.D. pleasures and she feels right with the world....just this small act of organization.

I hope I am not alone in finding this to be a little off-putting....and HA-LAIR-IOUS! I find myself to be a reasonable person. I do love Mo to death but sister, "Let go of the control, Let go I tell you!"

Thank you for letting me interrupt your daily "Mo" programming. This was just a test. This was only a test.

I for one love the fact she separates her coins into such pretty jars. I do agree it's a bit obsessive compulsive, but really...that's why i love her.

Hmmm..

Thanks Mel! We appreciate your insights.

However there's cleary a mistake. These couldn't possibly be Mo's coin jars.


They have DIRT on the inside!!! Mo would have ran them thru the dishwasher first!

Once you mentioned coin jars I knew that was coming!

Ha-ha... this cracked me up. Hi Mel! The coin thing doesn't surprise me - her apartment is neat as a pin.

Cheryl said...

That's a neat freak to the Nth degree. She's keeping it real.

Hi Mel!

Mo, the first step is admitting you have a problem.

Big hugs!

Boy she need's to come to my house...I needs me some organizing done...

CrystalChick said...

That's pretty cool though. I wish I was half as organized as you and your friend! Seriously, it's bad over here.

Happy Diwali! Celebrate your inner light! Stop by for a little candle glow!
