“We have a new system how we remember things,” our friend recently said. “You know this moment when you are already in bed, ready to fall asleep, and you suddenly remember something that needs to be done the next day? Every time when this happens we simply throw something onto the ground!”
(…blank looks from our side…)
“Well, for example a book! When we get up the next morning, we’ll see the book on the ground and we’ll know that it’s meant to remind us of something!”
…This morning, when I got up, I looked at the floor in front of our bed. Two big bags of laundry waiting to be folded. My lugguage from Saturday, half of it dragged onto the floor. A ball. A Calvin and Hobbes book. A book from the little one. A big box of diapers. A pair of shoes. Various loose socks. Clothespegs in various colours. A tissue. A nursing pillow.
Bugger! I really can’t remember what they are supposed to tell me!
