The lower ranking Seaman aboard ship must pull ‘mess duty’ (In the Army that is KP), The new Seaman will fill the drink containers with Grape and Orange drink, because they like it. (Actually the sailors affectionately call it the flavored drinks, bug Juice.). There are 5000 sailors on an Aircraft Carrier and they drink a lot of bug juice. They drink up gallons of Grape and Lemon (cool-aid). Soon the kid learns if he fills the containers with lime flavor, the usage slows down, and reduces his workload.
Grocery shopping the other day I picked up some ‘rainbow sherbet’. Lime, Raspberry and Orange flavors.
But first Task schedules: Son Mark and I worked together for many years. I am one who tends to do the dreaded jobs first. Son Mark is opposite, he puts off the dreaded jobs until the end. He always gets them done, but they are last.
Also If I am painting or siding a house, I want to do the back and sides first and save the front for last. Mark must do the front first because it tends to give the impression that you are through, when if fact you have just begun the job.
Now that rainbow sherbet, of the three flavors, what am I eating first, LIME. I do not DISlike lime, it is just my last choice of fruit flavors. I am gonna really enjoy the orange and Raspberry when I get to it.
If you have a choice in tasks scheduled, do you have a preference?
