DUH! moment, a split
second that we are not
monitoring our own
well being and end up
doing something that we
would not normally do….
Like misplacing our wallets
the car keys, or even forgetting
where we parked the car in the
supermarket lot. Maybe it’s
taking one medication and
forgetting the other one.
Or not remembering it’s garbage
day until the truck drives past your house. Letting the pot boil over onto the stove, leaving the tap running,or a light on in a room that is unused for days.
It’s a DUH! moment, and yes that’s Homer Simpson you hear in the background with his trademark DUH!
I’ve had a few too many lately…like the mad money change purse that I “misplaced” for over a week, it held around $20, enough for a good amount of craft supplies, and it was lost. Big time, in fact the last time I remembered having it in my hand was in a dollar store…and I thought for sure someone else now had a mini windfall.
Then there was the $50 bill a Christmas gift from someone, I put it in a “safe place” you know those places..the kind you tell your husband “remember where I put this for safe keeping, because you know that I won’t remember” and he absent mindedly nods yes while doing something else. I hide it, and a month later realized that I couldn’t find it. And he had no idea what I was talking about.
The day I tried to scrub the inside of a glass clean with a long handled dish brush, pushing too hard, for some silly reason thinking that the glass would stretch…it did, as it cracked and cut my thumb open. Still bandaged over that one.
Too many DUH! moments lately, too many cuts, too many lost items…
How many DUH! moments have you had lately…and can we blame it on winter?
