A typical day sees a lot of thoughts zing through my brain. I have learned that if I don’t write the important ones down – immediately – then they are gone … forever. For me, a thought is a lot like a snowflake, every one is special and unique, and, if not preserved, will never come again.
So I have taken up the practice of carrying a little notebook around with me 24/7 everywhere I go. I find myself feverishly scribbling in that notebook all the time. Funny thoughts, serious thoughts, shopping lists, reminders, etc. It can be very handy.
Sometimes, though, when I go back to look, I find a scribble that totally defies understanding. Actually this happens quite often. Maybe even every single time. 🙂 It’s a lot like that one episode of Seinfeld where Jerry wakes up in the middle of the night and laughs while scribbling something down. In the morning, of course, he can’t even read his own handwriting and can’t remember the joke. Ha ha!
Well, it’s no joke! I’m here to tell you this is a very serious matter!
This weekend we were out of town and during our travels I jotted down an important note that I just knew would make an excellent topic for a future blog post.
“My whole body could be covered in glaucoma.”
Seriously? I wrote that?!?!? I have to admit, it’s some of my best work … evar.
Unfortunately I have absolutely no idea what it could possibly mean. No brain cells were assigned memory duty on this one. Got any guesses? 🙂
