So, as a service to them I'd like to offer concrete proof that you don't have to be
old advanced to lose your mind.
The following events have all taken place last week.
I put the milk away in the pantry. When my kids called me on it I totally faked them out and pretended that I was just checking to see if they were paying attention. Yeah. That was it.
When baking bread the other night I put the bread in the oven, set the timer and went downstairs and completely forgot about the bread. I also forgot that I am hearing impaired and there is no way on earth I will hear the timer if I am not standing directly in front of it. Turns out you can bake bread for double the recommended time and not burn it. You will have four inches of crust, but the bread remains un-scorched. Good thing my sons will eat anything.
I left the garage door wide open the other night. All night. All that was missing was a sign that said "Welcome thieves. Please take my van and lawn mower. The spare housekey is in here somewhere too. Start looking."
Fortunately I also forgot to post the sign so everything was still in place in the morning.
I have misplaced half a cucumber. It's no longer in my fridge and I can guarantee I did not use it up. Way Cooler only eats veggies when they are peeled, cut and forced upon him so he's not to blame and while my kids are healthy eaters if they are gonna steal something from the fridge chances are good it will not be a vegetable. So if you see a lonely half a cucumber somewhere would you mind sending it home?
There are more, but that is all I care to share at this time. Any more and the nice people from the Department of Families and Children are going to pay me a visit and there is no telling what I'd forget when they are here.
