Don't Forget To Remember

"Your mind not only wanders, sometimes, it leaves entirely."

There's a reason I've had this comic pinned to my bulletin board for at least 10 years. It so aptly describes the SJG state of mind, it's spooky. Why, I have only to mention yesterday's mental mishap to illustrate what goes on up there in my clogged keppy: 

"Hi, I'm here for my appointment with Lenny. I'll go grab a smock. "
"What time is your appointment?"
"Lenny doesn't get here till 12."
"Carol, your appointment is tomorrow at 11:15."
"It is?"
"Are you sure?"
"Well, spank my butt and call me Charlie."
"Uh, okay. See you tomorrow."

I get home and check the calendar on my bulletin board, conveniently located to the left of the afore-mentioned comic. Yep. It's right there, written clearly in ink: Friday, 11:15.  What a goof ball. Maybe next time I make an appointment, I'll be all tech-savvy and such. Set up a calendar alert on my iPhone. Throw in a blaring horn sound. AWOOGA! AWOOGA! Assuming I can remind myself to remember to do that, which, just between us, seems doubtful.
