My friend Sarah can move and organize children with the strategy of a master chess player in the championship tournament. Her plans are intricate, and precise, detailed and executed flawlessly. She brings together mothers, with children the same ages and in similar activities and organizes us in ways none of us really understand. Only Sarah. When Sarah tries to explain the master plan to me my ears start ringing and my nose twitches and I start to feel a throbbing sensation in the back of my neck. And then I get confused and forget where I am supposed to be when.
So we have all accepted her as our general and we, the faithful soldiers, trust in her carefully laid plans. If Goldman Sachs knew about her she would undoubtedly be recruited and put to work on algorithms or computer programming or something else that causes me intense anxiety. I am glad they don’t, it’s spring and soccer and lacrosse just started.
Who else carpools? Do you have a friend like this? If not, you must find out who this person is in your town and be very, very nice to her.
