Sometimes, I Forget

I’ll just say it: sometimes, I forget things. Important things.

Like phone messages I said I would deliver. Or projects I said I would complete. Or, just recently, a promise to send an email address to a friend.

I don’t mean to forget. Which is the reason I carry a Day-Timer. When you ask me for something, and I put it in the planner, chances are I’ll get it done.

Unless.

Unless I forget to look at the Day-Timer. Which happens often on weekends. Which explains why I almost missed an important family dinner on Friday.

Was saved by the last-minute text message from a cousin who said he couldn’t make it.

Which meant I could. Or would.

Sometimes, I get lucky.
