on the other hand, if you asked me the exact date of our last cali trip, i could tell you, ( 7.2.05)
or what i wore when___, or when a certain movie came out. or the name of that 2nd eyelid that an alligator has. (nictitating membrane) i remember that. no problem. that's me- queen of remembering insignificant details.
this comes up because i have forgotten to buy a can opener for the last month.
about a month ago, i noticed it was difficult to turn. so i sprayed it with pam,
and went on my way. it worked great. for the time being. that should have
automatically landed itself on my shopping list. it didn't.
i went to the grocery store at least 5 times. and forgot. every. time.
when gar would have his nightly tuna, triscuits, and pink grapefruit juice (random, hu?),
he would comment on the dang can opener. and i would make a mental
note to buy one.
fast forward to last saturday. i was out running errands. i saw an adorable
aqua can opener and snatched it up, happy that i had finally remembered.
i brought it home, and presented it to gar. he had just returned with some grilling garb and made a fabulous lunch with my cousin sterling's
smiling, he opened the drawer and held up a new black can opener. awww...
**for the record, a new can opener has the ability to change your world.
