Choose life. (Deuteronomy 30:19)

Sometimes the General of Housekeeping assigns me Special Duties. Sometimes it's cleaning out dustbins, at others it can be cleaning out toilets.

Lately I have been given the task of installing the hostel's new artillery of pillows. All 490 of them.

They come in packs of 10. For each one I have to do the following:

Remove the outer plastic from the pack of 10 pillows.

Remove the plastic from the individual pillow.

Remove the outer plastic from the pack of 10 pillow-protectors.

Unfold the pillow-protector.

Place the pillow inside the pillow-protector and zip it up.

Unfold a pillow-case.

Place the pillow (inside the pillow-protector) inside the pillow-case.

Swap the whole thing with the pillow on a bed.

Repeat 490 times.

Take all 490 old pillows upstairs to a place that increasingly resembles a kids' playroom.

Recycle all plastic-bags.

I've been doing this project, on and off, for over 3 weeks now.

I really ought to be feeling tired.

Yes, I know you are.
