Sometimes I forget things. I know, you wonder, "How could someone with such a wonderfully keen mind also be forgetful?" Truth be known, my mind is anything but keen and almost always forgetful. Because of this, I tend to write stuff down. I'm sure whoever invented the Post-It note is getting very rich off me.
Since I've started blogging and doing more writing, I have taught myself to write down ideas immediately when they come to me. I've mentioned in a previous post that many times I will have some great epiphany and convince myself that there's no way I could ever forget such a brilliant thought, only to realize 5 minutes later it has completely vanished. So, back to my original point...I write ideas down.
Tonight as I sat down to blog, I looked at my list of ideas, scanning for something interesting and blogworthy. I found exactly what I was looking for. My note said, "my son's name - Jesus and a double barrel shotgun". Sounds like the makings of a fantastic post. One problem....I have no recollection whatsoever of what that note means. Sorry, I'll have to wait and see if Jesus and a double barrel shotgun come up in conversation again. This time I think I'll take better notes.
