Have you ever put a pot on the stove, on high heat, and gone outside to the garden — for hours? I have. I had to repaint the ceiling after that one — black beans in a pressure cooker have amazing velocity!
Have you loaded up the car with luggage and driven out onto the street to leave for the airport and noticed your front door was standing wide open? In winter? I have.
Have you put a hose in a flower bed in the morning and then gone to bed that night wondering what that whushing sound was before remembering the hose? I have.
Well, I’m happy to tell you there is one thing I never forget — where the chocolate stash is. And that’s what gave me my foolproof plan for forgetfulness. All I do now is write in BOLD letters whatever it is I don’t want to forget and….oh brother, I just remembered that I handed in a prescrption for a refill yesterday and was told to come back in 10 minutes!…gotta go. You’ll figure it out by looking at the picture.
