In which i forgot to pick it up

think it about

Did you pick up the dry cleaning?


Well, that’s how my day started.


Me:      No, I forgot


Kevin:  you forgot?


Me:      I think I’m turning into my mother


Kevin: how’s that?


Me:      I just remember my dad being all pissed off at her and saying “Barbara, you only had one thing to do today and that was pick up my yogurt and you didn’t even do that”


Kevin: yeah, your dad used to get so pissed at your mom


Me:      well, that’s what’s happening to me too


Kevin: I texted you yesterday to pick up the dry cleaning


Me:      well, here’s my theory.  When you have a lot to do then you’re organized and really busy and you get everything done.  But when you only have one thing to do then you tend to procrastinate.  For example, I knew I had to get the dry cleaning but I kept putting it off and then I thought I’d tie it in with picking up some frozen yogurt but then I picked up the frozen yogurt and came home and totally forgot about the dry cleaning and by the time I remembered it was already closed.  So the point is, the less you have to do, the more time you waste and then you get absolutely nothing done.


Kevin:             I have no idea what that entire rationale was all about.


Me:                  by the way, I did text you last night while you were out to dinner to tell you I forgot


Kevin:             I was at a business dinner; I had my phone on silence


Me:                  well, are you out of clothes?


Kevin:             no, I’m not OUT of clothes.  I just have a customer coming today and need one of my nicer shirts.


Me:                  well, if you don’t look very pretty just tell the guy it was your wife’s fault.


Kevin:             somehow, I don’t think it will come up


Me:                  I will definitely pick it up today


So there you are.  I spent yesterday finishing one book and then I started another and I completely forgot to do anything for Kevin since he wouldn’t be home for dinner.  Man I’m good at wasting time.  I think it’s almost impressive. ALMOST!

    Now it all makes sense! I was wondering why Kevin was dressed the way he was with a customer visit yesterday but didn’t want to ask.

    It is totally impressive. I would even consider it a ‘life skill’.

    From a procrastination standpoint, it was a great day!

    Your rationale makes PERFECT sense. The same thing goes for the Valentine’s Day dinner reservations that I was supposed to make last week…and then yesterday…and now I HAVE to do them today. Or my boyfriend will not be pleased.

    I am TOTALLY the same way! When I’m busy, I can get everything done, but when I’m not, I procrastinate and can’t get anything done. It makes absolutely no sense.

    I completely understand your perspective. When you only have one or two things to do, they can simply be bumped to another point in time. But when you have a complete list of things to do, you bump all of them so that you don’t run out of time before getting everything done and thus become a big fat failure. What you did was right. You failed by choice. Not by chance. LOL.
