I wouldn't like to say that I am becoming forgetful, really. Nor would I quite qualify myself as blind as a bat. But there are certain things I keep loosing and I need help finding. My glasses, my coffee and occasionally, my beer.
My glasses are the worst culprits. In my mind, I only ever put them in two places so it always baffles me when they're not in either. We have it down to a science, I holler that I can't find them and the household goes into a well rehearsed routine. One of my children heads upstairs and the other starts opening the pantry and the freezer in search of them.
(I only left them in the freezer once.) If my husband happens to be home, he'll look too muttering all the while, "why can't you just put them in the same place every time?" My reply, naturally, is that I am not always in the same place when I need to take them off! But I always leave them either here, by my chair, or in the bathroom by the sink. He replies, ever so helpfully, "sure you do." Invariably, they are found somewhere that I know I did NOT put them and off we go.
Then there is my coffee. Mine ends up in places I KNOW unequivocally, that I didn't put it. It is the malicious coffee fairies. Because why on earth would I leave a hot cup of coffee on the pantry shelf? Or on top of the printer? Or in one of the kids bedrooms? But my glasses and my coffee have ended up in all three to my bafflement.
This could explain a lot.
