It always made me laugh. Now, I still laugh, but it's more of a reminder. Things need to be done in order. First we have to get out of bed, and then we tackle our day. Once we're up and about, we need to set priorities, and follow the order.
We have to learn to play the piano before we can perform a concert.
We have to learn the rules of writing, before we will be published.
We have to take time to really get to know someone, before we can count them among our dearest friends.
How embarrassing it is to jump ahead of things, putting our shoes on first, and entirely forget about our pants. I've done it before. Figuratively, of course! I wouldn't recommend it.
