Another year gone..just like that. Why is it when we are young we want to be always older? And now that I am older I just want to be smarter?
And to start my new year, I had the severe case of forget fullness. Started Monday with my phone at home. When it was time to go home I couldn’t find my car keys. I searched through my entire purse, emptying contents on the desk, only to discover that I left them in the ignition. Thankfully I forgot to lock my car doors. Stopping at the Mall to buy something, reach into my purse to grab my wallet, it isn’t there. It is at work on my desk because I had to look for my keys there remember? So home I go, talking to myself on how dumb I am. And since my drivers license is in my wallet which is at work, over sudden I get paranoid and notice every cop that is out there. So I turn into a granny driver, below speed limit, turn signals, looking constantly around me, praying please let me get home.
Next day drive to work to get wallet, again paranoid driving. Once I have the wallet, okay put the pedal to the metal and look out. Forget safety. Later the day, trip to the mall again. Out on the road just before the highway, I think did I turn my stove off? Alrighty, not sure about that, so let’s turn around and go back and check.
Forgot to pump my gas at the Gas station yesterday – again. But at least I remembered this time before I pulled out of the gas station and not at the second light as before. Today at the store, I had a shopping cart. The key word is had, I lost or left it somewhere between the fresh produce and the baked beans aisle and didn’t notice till I got all the way back to the eggs.
So here is to getting older and forget fullness, I just wish it would hit me at the right time, like when I say something totally off the wall and I can deny it, because I don’t remember.
