OT-A Name for the Syndrome

I know a lot of you share my particular habit of, well, just not saying
no. I have friends who urge it upon me, and sometimes I do decline to
help out from time to time. But I do a lot of quilting for charity, work
at the kids' schools a lot, now I'm helping organize a quilt show. But,
my life is pretty rich. All in all, I'm OK with what I take on. Scott
just returned from a business trip where he spent the evening with
friends of ours. This tendency of mine must have come up.

They described me as Insufficiently Reluctant!

I *love* it. I want a hat. I want a T-shirt. And I know that lots of you
share my affliction. So now we can have a club. We can make it an
acronym! Yeah! "Do you suffer from IR?"  

I must have summoned up some reluctance yesterday, because today I am
NOT supervising a group of Japanese exchange students in their community
volunteer project, slapping paint on storm drains in the searing heat.
Thank goodness! Instead I've got to quilt my entry for the quilt show
and go and pick up Tiggrr's quilts for the show.

Also Kim 'AND take DD#2 to the pet store to complain about her new
lizard that died AND take a meeting on my new PTA position AND take Yuko
shopping for the exchange student party AND call the school quilt
committee about next year's raffle quilt AND AND AND' Fisher

What searing heat?  It's not hot out?  Just think, you could be in the
Midwest where not only is it really hot, it's really humid!  This is nice.
Of course, I haven't been outside today so it might be hot outside.  My
apartment stays pretty cool as long as I don't turn on the lamp in the
living room.

Oh, and if it wasn't for your IR, I'd not be able to say that I have quilts
in a quilt show! ;)  Never have shown any of my quilts to people other than
friends and family.

Tigg (still don't think it's hot)

1.  I used to suffer from IR, but am cured.  I just decided to start saying
no.  Perhaps we should start an IRA organization.

2.  Tigg, it IS hot.  Supposed to be 100 in Medford (Oregon) today;
101 tomorrow!  And I usually get the same temperatures here.

Supposed to be 92 here tomorrow.  But I'm talking from a Midwest point of
view where it's hot AND humid all summer long.  We have about 2 weeks of hot
weather in the summer, and that's putting it all together from an entire
summer.  It's not humid.  At least not to me.  I don't think it's humid here
even when it's raining.  At least not Midwest humid.

Tigg (who enjoys the weather out here much better than in Kansas where you
need gills to breathe.)

I agree.  I am not pleased with the humidity we're having this
summer, but remember too well summers in central Texas and
Iowa City to complain too loudly.  I DO complain about the
heat -- despite memories of Arizona's "real" heat.
