Super Bowl Today

I had a friend write me an email and ask if I was going to watch the Super Bowl. I had forgotten that today was the Super Bowl. That shows how I have really tuned out the rest of the world.

I swear that if I don’t put something on my calendar, with a reminder that is going to pop up, I will forget eat. I set an alarm to go off every Sunday at 9:00 AM to wind the clocks. The hands are at the right spot so they don’t cover the key holes.

If I get to doing something, the rest of the world is absolutely tuned out. People talk and I don’t hear them.

If Koki wants to go outside, she knows that I will not notice her unless she comes up and puts both feet on my knee and looks at me with those pleading eyes. I am becoming reactionary instead of proactive.

I do, however, remember to put all important things on my calendar with an appropriate amount of warning time. I have become completely dependent on automation. That is why I was lost for the entire time my iPhone was missing.

Now why was it that I started this post? See, I have already forgotten. Damn, I hope I set an alarm.

  1. You should use Siri for things like this…it makes it even easier. For example we will be at the grocery store and I’ll whip out my phone and say, “Siri, remind me when I get home that Carson is grounded from x-box.” It works like a charm. As soon as I pull into my driveway, Siri makes my reminder announcement, followed by crying and pleading from the back seat. What could be easier?

    Maybe you did not remember about the game because the Cowboys are not in. Go NINERs!
