    This morning we went out to breakfast. It stormed. When we got home, rooster had to fix the flag that hangs off the front of the house. It was still raining out, and for whatever reason, I started singing "The Star-Spangled Banner" in an Elizabeth Holmes-esque baritone, very loudly, just wandering aimlessly about.

    I turned around, and our weirdo across-the-street neighbors were sitting on their front porch, stifling laughter until they saw me noticed, then they laughed for real.

    I mean. Why, Tater? Why?

    I’ve been missing a couple pairs of shoes since we moved that stuff. This morning I finally found them. In a shoe rack right outside our bedroom. :wall:
    Also left my computer at home and had to go back for it.

    I asked rooster to switch over the load of laundry downstairs and made a big deal about how I really needed a few of the articles in it. He came up and asked if I've been having problems with the dryer because the clothes were so wet it felt like I had never turned it on.

    After thinking for a moment, I realized I had never turned it on.

    @Dorothygale at least he thinks so highly of you that he thought the dryer was broken before he thought to suggest you forgot to turn it on lol

    Haha W would totally do that. And in his place I would say “did you forget to turn the dryer on??” My friend and I have a long running joke about how our spouses are way nicer than we are (he is very nice though) and this is the kind of thing where that comes up.

    At Costco and I pulled down a box of apples that looked good. Water had pooled in one of the apple depressions and then spilled on me. Now I smell like apple cider vinegar.

    Today when I opened a kombucha dispenser kombucha exploded both on me and the floor at rooster’s work. I guess this is the week of smelling fermented.

    Today when filling out a gift receipt for our friends’ kid, I had to look up their kids name. Cue me scrolling through their old Facebook feed for a birth announcement (she’s turning one). These are pretty good local friends, it’s embarrassing that I blanked on this. It’s also good that I didn’t fill out the name I THOUGHT this kid has, because it would have been dead wrong.

    Central intake sends us unlabeled documents. I was trying to send orders out to a nurse but instead I just sent them right back to central and was like “orders.”

    The only reason I caught it was because a central nurse responded to me and said thanks :lol:
    This is an entire week of Monday’s.

    @Afishwish Oh, I feel this. During a 4th of July party one year, I called G’s cousin’s 5-year-old daughter the wrong name the entire day. Nobody corrected me. I’m still embarrassed. (I was very very close, but wrong is wrong.)

    P got me this adorable tiny music box with a wind up handle thing to make it go. When he gave it to me, I started playing it and staring intently at top. It took thirty seconds (at least) before he realized what I was doing and had to tell me that it wasn't a jack-in-the-box.

    @Lh718 similar, but put on my glasses and couldn’t see. Took them off thinking my vision had been magically restored.

    Last night I forgot to take out my contacts before going to bed. Realized this morning when my contact case was empty

    I did not realize this was referring to actual chickens until I started trying to google if I could get one for myself.

    When you go to an outdoor concert / arts event in your ‘hood and you bring wine in a water bottle and the organizer is like “thank you guys so much for coming! I was worried about attendance with not having beer and wine...” :lol:
