Perfect Nancy Revealed - The Sneak Repeater!!!

Well, she's been at it again.  That Nancy, I mean.  Yup, I've been working a lot with that Nancy lately, and so I've tried to be respectful and stop referring to her as Perfect Nancy all the time.  I just don't think she takes it in the true spirit in which it's intended.  Now I just refer to her as "That Nancy".  I think it's nicer and more open to interpretation.

Anyway, since Rosemary is still out on the mend, I've been spending more and more time with That Nancy, and I'm starting to learn the secrets behind her tricky ways.  Everyone thinks she so productive all the time.  It's not unusual for people to come in and express their opinions.

"Oh, look at that - the store looks great today.  Nancy must have been working hard!"  Or, "Where's Nancy today?  Whatever will you do without her?"  Hhhmmph.  Little does everyone know the real reason That Nancy looks so productive all the time - she's a sneak repeater!!!

It all started with the button display.  We had a shelf devoted to buttons - beautiful buttons in all sizes that were separated in bins by color.  I loved the button shelf.  Bins of buttons are happy things.  Bins of buttons make me smile.  Not so That Nancy.  That Nancy decided that the beautiful buttons were taking up too much space.  She wanted that shelf space for something else, so what does she do?  She takes all those beautiful, presorted buttons and dumps them in a big drawer.  A drawer!!!  All the buttons were mixed.  Now if you wanted blue buttons you had to dig through and find the blue buttons.  My mind couldn't take it - oh, the indecency of it all!!!


So, the buttons sat around for a few weeks, all mixed together and depressed.  That Nancy never did come up with any plan for displaying that ugly drawer buttons, so there they sat.  I could hardly look at them.

Then one day, while I'm there toiling away on fresh new articles for the blog, here comes That Nancy with the button drawer and some jars.  I tried to keep typing and act like I wasn't interested in what she was doing, but I couldn't help but notice when she plopped herself and started sorting all those buttons.  Yes, you heard me, sorting the buttons.

Eureka!  I've got it!  That's how That Nancy always looks so busy all the time... she keeps creating her own projects by doing and undoing her work!  What a sneaky repeater, than Nancy!  Just look at That Nancy, looking all  like she's working hard and everything:

I tell you, the more I learn about That Nancy, the more I just can't believe how she wins all these awards all the time.  Everyone thinks she's doing all this amazing work, when really she just does and re-does the same jobs over and over... what a sneak!  What a repeater!  What a Sneak Repeater!!!!

Stay tuned, my loyal supporters... I'm sure all my hard undercover work is going to result in an award any day now...   And, if you come in and happen to notice how pretty the buttons look all sorted in their little jelly jars, please don't try to tell me what a great display artist That Nancy is... I know the real truth!!!
