I like to consider myself a responsible guy but others may view me as somewhat forgetful. I don’t do it on purpose, it just happens sometimes. When I go grocery shopping, I would forget at least three things on my list. When I would buy popcorn at the movies, I would sometimes forget to buy a soda to go with it. I’m working harder to be more conscious of what I have to do so I won’t be so forgetful.
Yesterday afternoon, my wife sent me to the store to pick up a couple of cans of tomato paste for her spaghetti sauce. I got into my car and went straight to the store with the goal of purchasing only what she needed. On my way to the canned goods aisle, I passed across the automotive section. On a display, I saw that the Yamaha outboard oil filters are on sale. I love bargains so I picked up three and made my way to the registers. As I was about to pay, my phone rang and it was my wife reminding me to pick up the two cans of tomato paste that she needed. I was somewhat embarrassed but thankful that my wife knows me as well as she does.
