As you know, a to-do is an item on a list. Usually it’s a chore, a renovation, a repair, or an errand. Back in the day, though, a to-do was a public fuss or argument. I can remember my mother saying “Oh, she caused such a to-do!” to show her disgust at such behaviour.

So, here is such a to-do list:

1. Make my neighbour aware that her yappy dog is annoying.
2. Tell my Harley-Davidson-driving neighbour that his motorcycle’s noise breaks a sound by-law.
3. Put my hands on my hips and glare at the able-bodied person who took the only disabled persons’ parking space outside the clinic.

There. That’ll show ‘em.

(Note to self: Take lessons in fuss-making.)
