What’s that smell?
Website updates are a lot like cleaning your room when you were a teenager. Your mother tells you to do it, but you just don’t feel like it. It’s no fun plus the situation is often out of control so who knows where to begin? Should you start with pulling the crusty, moldy, half-eaten sandwich out from under the bed? Nah, that’s gross – not touching that. Maybe pick up the laundry and dishes. Again no, can’t carry all that at once. Wait, don’t I have a report due? Yeah, that space-time continuum thing isn’t going to write itself. My room will have to wait.
The comparison is uncanny, right?
Monkey House Syndrome
That room becomes a lot like a monkey house at the zoo. When you first enter it, it’s stinky, but after being in it for a while you don’t notice the smell anymore. It’s not until your Aunt Dee Dee comes to visit, has to cruise by your room on her way to visit the loo, gets a whiff, makes a face that could stop a clock, then unwittingly refuses to eat or drink anything during her visit that you finally realize your mother may be right and you just might be suffering from monkey house syndrome. It might be time to clean that up, before Aunt Dee Dee spreads the word to the rest of the family and yours becomes the stand alone at events. You know, you get married and there is no one sitting on your side of the church/venue.
