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!
