I couldn’t remember one of my best friend’s phone numbers this morning. A number I dial almost daily. I got to the third digit and then… nothing. Not an inkling of an idea what the next one was. Panic. This is one of my oldest friends, she's a lifeline, I've known her for over 17 years. And now, I will never, ever, be able to speak to her again, because my brain has turned into salty mush. I sat very still and wondered how I would get over this terrible conundrum.
Luckily she phoned me a little while later, waking me from my still-sitting reverie. I told her my tale of lost-headed woe and the tragedy that could’ve resulted. Her answer:
“You could’ve just looked it up on your phone. It is in there.”
She makes a good point. Pity I couldn't come up with it myself. Perhaps I shouldn’t be sitting here, at work, not even pretending to look busy, but with responsibilities that need attending to, hmm?
