I Remember Everything, It's My Memory That Forgets!
“Rack’n Frack’n remote!!” I was attempting to change the channel on my TV, and wondered why the remote wasn’t working; after all, I just put fresh batteries in it. I looked at the remote; pressed random buttons, still nothing; I looked at it again…it’s my cell phone!
I wanted to believe…okay, I prayed that I am not the only person who has done this; especially after looking at the cell phone and STILL think that it’s the remote. I have yet to decide if I’m angry at myself, my cell phone, or the remote. I will likely be angry at all three; at myself for thinking that my cell phone is the remote; at the cell phone for looking like the remote (actually it doesn’t…this is MY story) and at the remote…just because.
Sometimes my memory forgets to remember. For example: Stay with me…okay…this is a doozy! There was a time that if I went upstairs for something, and forgot what I went upstairs for, I could simply return downstairs, and suddenly remember why I went upstairs in the first place. Now, when I go upstairs and forget why I’m there, I return downstairs to remember, and I do remember; only now, once I get back upstairs… I’ve forgotten again!
There is one positive spin to this…I am getting a heap of exercise! I can only laugh at myself…actually I say a few choice words, and then I laugh. I try to look at things with a different perspective, so I won’t think that I’m nuts! In some way it helps, in other ways…I might be just a little frightened of myself!
I went to the market the other day; it seems I am there an awful lot. I went to buy something for dinner, and ended up with nothing but cleaning supplies. We might’ve been hungry, but we were surely clean as a whistle! See? That’s called looking on the bright side.
