Creature of Habit

By John L. Malone

You’re a creature of habit, he says.

Routines, I reply.

Habits by other names, he shoots back — and then begins to enumerate: Gym on Monday, Stunned Mullet on Tuesday. Library Wednesday, Gym and Coffee Club Thursday, out with your mates Friday, racetrack Saturday then family catch-up Sunday. And each morning mixed berries to start off your breakfast. You really ought to change.

I’ll think about it, I say. So I do.

Now I do The Stunned Mullet on Mondays, Gym on Tuesday, mates Wednesday … and so on, just to prove how flexible I can be.
