My brain has gone on vacation, and this is quite the inconvenient time for it to be out-of-office replying.
Like, for instance, today I’m at the water cooler in our main office and someone asks for something. I say, “As soon as I fill this water bottle…this water cup…this cup, I will get that piece of information for you.” I fill the cup, walk back to my office, and can’t for the life of me remember what it is the person needed.
And then, just now, I changed out of my pajamas back into my work clothes, put on my shoes, and was about to grab my purse for a trip to Target when I thought it might be a good idea to make a grocery list. I sit down, find a piece of paper, and ALL I can think to put on the list is “salt and pepper.” A whole trip to Target for salt and pepper? That seems a bit excessive. Can I remember anything else that motivated me to put on non-stretchy pants? Maybe a bookshelf, my brain replies. Do I need a bookshelf? Not really, says the brain, but you sort of want one. Just a little.
Perhaps I’ll stay home.
