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.
