It happens every day. People forget where they put their keys or their wallet. People forget whether or not they turned off the coffee pot. People forget how old they are...
It is normal to be listening to Pandora radio on you smart phone and suddenly need to make a call. You commence in a one handed panicky search because you forgot that you are holding your phone, the very phone you are desperately searching for, with the other hand.
It is standard human error to scour the house for your glasses, only to find them hanging around your neck, perched on top of your head, or sometimes even on your face.
It is not uncommon to forget to take your Ginkgo Biloba pills that are supposed to help your memory, because.... what was I saying?
However, most people that are working towards a specific goal don't forget that they actually reached that goal.
Let me explain.
I've been so wrapped up in the children's book that I illustrated, writing an original essay for the new book that I am part of and suffering from every seasonal illness in the Northern United States that I forgot that I was published in a book in December.
YOU GUYS! I'M PUBLISHED!
What kind of MORON forgets something like that?
^ This one ^
^ This one, too. ^
This is why I need help. Well, this and so so many other reasons.
Here is the book. You should buy it. Bex is in it with me, and her writing is so funny that I cannot make it through one post without snort-laugh-crying. Not one. Which reminds me of a letter that I have been wanting to write to Becky:
How are you? I am fine. (I started every letter of my youth with these two sentences. I was clearly a brilliant writer from the start.)
For the love of all this is right in the world, please keep writing! WE NEED YOUR FUNNY! Your humor may very well be the key to that elusive "World Peace" that people, leprechauns and robots keep talking about.
Now, get yer buns over to 'Merica! And bring me the Unicorn Head that you promised me so that we can finally wild stride together.
Also, I look forward to smelling your hair.
Peace, Love and Long Uncomfortable Hugs,
May I gently suggest that you get thyself over to Amazon and buy No Laughing Allowed (Life Well Blogged)? You can even get it for your Kindle! You can even buy me a Kindle and I will buy it for my Kindle! Whatever works for you! The proceeds are going to Sandy Relief. (Do you see how late to the party I am?)
I feel like I am forgetting to tell you all something else... where did I leave my coffee?
Did someone say waffles?
I think it was Red Dog...
