A funny thing happened on my way to growing older. I came into my White Chair Days. One enters into the White Chair Days zone only after an amusing and sometimes painful voyage through life’s milestones. When you look for and enjoy the humor as you transition from one phase of life to another, reaching your White Chair Days will defy expectations, and life will be anything but dull.
A Little to the Left
There was an ice tea company who modified the design of their glass bottles to give their customers a better grip. The right side of the container had four indentations for fingers and the left side contained an indentation for your thumb. The instructions recommended shaking the ice tea well before drinking in order to combine all of the flavors.
Lila grabbed one of the ice teas during a break at work. The added indentations helped prevent the slippery, perspiring bottle from catapulting out of her hands like a liquid filled missile. “It is so smart that someone thought enough to embed these impressions into the glass bottle,” she said as she vigorously shook the tea.
Now, Lila is a person with a huge heart. As she stood shaking her drink with her right hand, a thought occurred and her internal reflections became verbal. “I feel really bad for people that are left handed. What do they do when they need to shake this ice tea?”
Without skipping a beat, a co-worker slipped the bottle out of her right hand and, turning the bottle around 90 degrees, placed it into her left hand, where all the indents lined up perfectly.
