Distracted? I think so.

This morning, as usual, I got up and went straight to the coffee maker. I poured in new water, put in a new filter, and pressed "On." As the grinder got going, I vaguely noticed through my sleep-addled state that something sounded different, but I just attributed this to my hearing loss. Everyday is an adventure when you have hearing loss.

But normally I hear the beans grinding. Can you see where I'm going with this? Yep, forgot to put in the coffee.

Last week I turned on the dryer to fluff some clothes only to find a few minutes later that I'd already folded them. This happened twice.

I'm almost afraid to cook.

I've been doing some manly drilling near a plug socket and as I have no desire to electrocute myself to death, I switched the power off to play safe.

Checked the fuse three times before I figured out why the drill had stopped working.

Manly drilling. I like it.

Kiersten said...

Ah, WO, lol.

Both great stories.

My only question is whether or not there was a point to the manly drilling, or if you just needed some testosterone boosts.

You've been distracted, baby.

Run with it. Carefully!!!

You guys are hysterical!

Sounds like you have a lot on your mind at the moment Freddie.

I'm not sure what your excuse is WO. It reminds me of the time I cleaned out the fridge before going off on holiday, then turned the electricity off and shut the fridge door. I never made that mistake again.

Two days ago I tried getting into the library where I work by using the remote keyring from my car. After I heard the car beep it hit me, DUH. I need to use the CARD KEY to get into the blasted library.

But so far I haven't tried to get into my car by using my card key. That's the good news.

Lisa, when I had a car I did the same thing!
