The list

12 May

Unsurprisingly my mind is all over the place at the moment…well I say at the moment but in truth I think years of university binge drinking has killed off a few brain cells. I walk into a room and instantly forget what I’m looking for/doing/was going to say; I drive the whole way to the shop repeating the one thing I urgently need and come home with everything BUT that thing. ‘I’m not lost, Just weird’ posted recently (here) about the same kind of problem.

Well, the other day I was doing my usual trick of saying to my husband throughout the morning  ‘oh remind me we need to get X’ …. ‘oh and we could do with some Y too….’

A few minutes later he presented me with a sheet of paper (smiling and looking pleased with himself)…a list… a shopping list…aww how thoughtful…and simple…And then I actually read it:

The List

The List – Comfortably Numb

For those who cant read his writing this is what it says:

1 Get dressed
2 Brush teeth
3 Get keys
4 Leave house
5 Lock door
6 Unlock car door
7 Turn car on
8 Drive to the store
(love you  xxx)
Sandwich stuff
Chips – like the ones that you would pack in a lunch
Vagina cream (circled)

THIS is his idea of a shopping list! Lol dickhead! He explained that by writing (and circling) ‘vagina cream’ (which i didnt need btw) he knew I would be embarrassed if anyone saw my list and it would make him laugh thinking about it…. Well it turns out it made ME laugh thinking about it… for the whole bloody day!

I had to carry the list with me whilst running errands before going shopping and it genuinely made me laugh out loud -whilst alone…thus making me look even crazier than normal to passers by- throughout the day.

I may ask him to write my shopping lists every time…just to make my day more interesting 🙂

    That idea is genius! I need to do that to my wife. First, I need to hide every sharp and blunt object in the house.

    Warning about lists. We always have one but if something doesn’t get on the list it is forgotten. So now we need a list for the list.

    I do believe we all do these things from time to time. i spent an hour looking for my reading spectacles the other day only to discover they were on my face. I believe it is called senility.

    Sounds like something my husband would do. I like to pretend he’s being a dork, but secretly I like the attention.

      I told my husband I liked it and he shook his head and said it just wouldnt be the same next time – because i would know it was coming…but i think hes secretly plotting to out do himself 😉

        Good. It’s fun! Like when I pretend to be mad at my husband for taking a swat at my backside in public, even though I like it when he… um…. stakes out his claim. LOL.
