I have looked repeatedly at RevGals to see where today's Friday Five is. . . . AND only right now, at 2 pm in Texas, do I realize I am the one in charge! I am sorry I am so late and forgetful.
That brings forth all the times I've been late or forgot something. How about you?
When have you been late or a no-show? When have you forgotten something or someone? Jan
Periodically—in fact these days it is more the rule than the exception, I forget stuff. I know Jan feels as much a fool as I do when such things happen. But I am so thankful that you didn’t come out with this until late. For us Anglican types, we have been all over the internet with the Archbishop of Canterbury’s resignation today. I had 174 emails between 8:30 am and noon. I only now have time to play with the FF.
1. at church: I overslept once and got there for the blessing. And I forgot to set my clock last week and almost was late—that sermon was preached WBC (without benefit of coffee). Not a pretty sight. But we have a worship team that is always ready to do Morning Prayer if need be.
2. at home: Almost every day! Getting up, getting dinner, getting groceries, always emptying the cat box. Thank God we are both retired!
3. at work: See above.
4. with friends: I forgot to pick someone up at the airport once. ARGGGGG.
5. ? where else?: I forget my keys, billfold, jacket, glasses with such great regularity I now have a ritual before I leave the house that includes patting pockets and a litany that keeps me on track. Perhaps I will set it to music. I know it will be a hit with the Boomers! And I also forget that I have forgotten. Isn’t age wonderful??? You young things pay attention: At least we muthahs have an excuse!
