I stayed up way too late on Sunday night talking with our son Seth who came home for a short visit. Since I had an early Monday morning walking date, I decided to set an alarm just in case. I cannot remember the last time I did that--no early morning flights (pandemic-related), no go-to-work (retirement), usually turn out the light by ten (eyes closing over a book).
Why am I reporting this? Because although I have set that very alarm clock thousands of times, I had forgotten how. Of course, I figured it out, and all ended well. I was sleeping when it rang at exactly the right time.
That got me thinking about what else I’ve forgotten how to do.
Not a good idea.
