"I've been gearing up to be completely passive."

That's just something I said yesterday. I was referring to something I'm going to have to do all day tomorrow. I'd been given my role, and someone at the meeting was proposing a new way to switch off roles over the course of the day. No, no. I've already adjusted my mind around the current plan, psyching myself up for the day. I've been gearing up to be completely passive.

Technically, shouldn't you be gearing down?

Hmmmm.... it's just my private sense of humor, lmeade.

Should I ask what you're doing or is it obvious to everyone else but me, as usual?

Paul: This is the Althouse comments section. You're supposed to come up with creative ideas!

1. Acting as a standby junior assistant proctor for the ACT.

2. Donating plasma.

3. Serving as a "victim" in an emergency preparedeness drill.

You mean like Professor Althouse having agreed to represent Harriet Miers in mock confirmation hearings slowly began to sink into her role, which she hoped would carry her through the iron gaze of Senators all?

I think this section is where I've seen a lot of scenarios I don't understand....I shouldn't be here.

One of your sons is getting married.

No, wait, then you'd be gearing up to completely passive-aggressive.
