I was sitting there minding my own business when I had that little nudge that I was forgetting something. You know that little voice in the back of your head that says, huh. Don’t you have something really important due soon?
The conversation went something like this:
“What’s due and how soon?”
“I dunno. pretty soon?” That voice, let’s call it Fred, said.
“Can you be more specific?”
“Nawww. But it’s soon. And you labeled it important.” Fred added helpfully as if reminding me I had thought it was important would help me remember.
Shit, it’s not my husbands birthday again? Didn’t he just have one? Like in the spring? I bring up the calendar. No, no, that’s not it.
“Can you give me a hint? Is it related to family, writing, or day job?” I feel like I’m playing twenty questions.
“Are you saying it’s writing or….”
“Yeah, Yeah… I remembered ’cause of that last thought you had.”
At this point, my last thought was if my kids or husband had found and plundered my stash of chocolate in the kitchen.
“You don’t remember?” Long dramatic sigh from Fred. “Do I have to remember everything for you?”
Not sure how to answer that, but I give a valiant try to remember what could have triggered him. “Missing blog post?”
“Yeah, that’s the one. You’re missing a blog post.”
Whew, not that big a deal. I try to write something up for Monday posting and it was Sunday. I had like 24 hour to get that done. “It’s okay I was just about to write one.”
“No not that one, the OTHER one.”
Ohoh. I had signed up for some guest blogs. “It’s not due til August.”
“Dude, it’s August.”
Huh, I better go find out when its due.
Do you have that little voice? What do you do to remember?
