November 20.19


Make a list!

What good advice!

If I were Santa,

I’d check it twice.

But I’m me,

with list syndrome:

 I write it out,

then leave it at home.


I did it again the other day, dear reader; I left the list at home. It’s not my fault! I have a syndrome! But here’s the truly trying thing: I remembered ONE THING from my list, and I was so proud of myself. Light brown sugar! And surely you know what came next. Yes, they were out of it.

  1. If chocolate chip cookies came out of forgetting the list, life is still good. Or, as a matter of fact, anything that requires brown sugar can usually make the day better. 🙂

  2. Oh, yes! The worst part for me is having wasted so much time and thought on composing the list!

  3. Oh heck! I suppose that’s just how it goes some days. My dad always liked soft brown sugar. I put my shopping list on my phone and I am still quite capable of forgetting it.

    • To demonstrate what a throw-back I seem to be, I must tell you that when I read that you put your shopping list on your phone, I instantly pictured a piece of paper taped to a phone. It briefly seemed like an awkward solution to the forgetting problem but then I came back to the 21st century and realized there was no paper involved. At which time I could laugh at your point! And hooray for your dad while I’m at it. The appreciation of soft brown sugar is too rare.
