the silly little things I do

Here's a couple of things I do when I'm not paying attention. Here lately, I've been doing this a lot.

Talking to a friend on my phone (only have a cell phone) and I'm looking all around for my phone. I've even said into the phone... "where the hell did I leave my phone?" Friend "uhhh... Tim, what are you talking about?" "huh?"

oh shit...
Have my lighter in my hand and come back in the house from the car and start looking all around for... my lighter.
oh damn...

Making coffee at a store. I use two splendas and six half & half shots...
Open the half and half, dump the milk in the trash throw the empty thimblethingie into the coffee... oops. Tear the splenda open and shake it into the trash can... lol.

forget what route I'm on and exit the wrong interstate on a given day. Oh shit. Usually I realize it's the wrong day in the middle of the exit curve... turn around next exit. (sigh)

my previous route before the one I'm on now I had to drive a different truck every day. One day I got mixed up and drove truck number 85 instead of 82. I got to my first store (1 hour from plant) and I had a trailer loaded with nothing but empty racks (ahhh... fuck'n hell)
(actually did that one on the day after I wrote that letter to my boy, lol)(boss wasn't happy)

get soda/water out of the fridge, poor a drink and put the soda/water back up... in the cupboard.

void the same check three times in a row because my hand wants to write it for whatever amount it wants regardless of what I actually owe!

Go back in the kitchen three times for the same glass of soda that I just poured and each time leave the kitchen with something other than the soda, and have to go back.

And, twice in the last six weeks I've gone to leave my house only to notice at the door that I'm wearing shorts... boxer shorts... mmm... think I may need clothes on.

me stressed and distracted, tired??? no way!

I lose my keys when they are in my hand. Paperwork that I need but can't find is the one I am holding at the time.
Looking at your new profile pic I forget what I was typing....
come here and I will give you a hug.

maybe I'll have to change that pic if it's distracting all you ladies so much

When I do crazy things like that, I really do think I am losing my mind. However, you do have a lot on your plate. Hang in there!

After the Katrina and the Flood, what stuff I had was spread out among 4 different locations. There were days I would stand in the middle of the room, after looking for something for 2 hours and try to convince myself that "I am NOT losing my Mind" repeated like a mantra.
What helped? Drugs, sex, rock and roll, really!
