Often I am told
“Come on! Think outside the Box!”
Here is my answer:
Some days I lose my
Bright, trusty rememberer.
You relate, don’t you?
Home phone has become
My trusty cell phone finder.
Call it and listen –
There’s a tune out there –
Simultaneous vibrate –
iPhone, where are you?
Think outside the box.
Think, where did you last use it?
I haven’t a clue!
See you tomorrow
(if I can find you)
This morning was almost a disaster. My husband was going on our ATV with a friend and two float tubes to do some fishing on No Name Lake. I forgot that I told him I’d make a sandwich for his lunch. It was time for me to go to my TOPS meeting. (For those of you unfamiliar with the acronym, it stands for “Take Off Weight Sensibly.”) Anyway, a promise is a promise. I carved out the time to make him an egg salad sandwich. Bless his heart, he’d already boiled the eggs for it.
Now it’s past time for TOPS and I suddenly remembered this is the day of our Installation of Officers meeting. We’re having breakfast in the Park. It’s a once a year extravaganza. I had promised to bring the coffee. Oh no! Guess what, there wasn’t a coffee bean or can of ground coffee to be found anywhere in the house. What to do? A promise is a promise!
The grocery store is 5 to 10 minutes away. By the time I’d go there and back with a can of Folgers, and brew it, the breakfast in the Park would be nearly over. Think creatively!!
Yes, we have a Keurig coffee maker. One cup at a time. Six pods of Vanilla Biscotti by Green Mountain and six pods of Paul Newman’s French Roast. Ah yes, put it in the coffee pot and away to the Park with cups, creamer, and Sweet n Low. Just in time for the breakfast set up!
A promise is a promise. Whatever it takes, even if you’re as screwy and forgetful as I am, keep your promises!
Oh, and you might check your calendar occasionally, too. That might help!
