Standing in my bathroom holding the micro fiber cloth for my glasses, which I had just washed. Wondering how I could possibly dry it quickly with some portable device instead of air drying or putting it through the dryer.

PAUSE

How long do you think it took before I noticed my hair dryer right in front of me???? I think the kids call that a *face palm* Eeeesh!

At least you didn't spend three weeks looking for the tiny little red bag that came with your Bernina 240 PE feet and accessories, only to remember after you'd cleaned and organized every room in your house, and agonized, mind you, that this machine came with a plastic Barbie box for accessories and feet. Said box was 4 feet away from the machine. That little red bag did not exist except in my mind. The worst part is that I got my husband and a friend involved. I'll never live this down.

kathleen - that is a classic! I have written this one before but I was finishing serging the bottom of some jeans not long ago and thinking how long it had been since I had serged the bottoms of pants for myself. One quarter turn to my left explained why - i have a coverstitch machine!

DH needed sunscreen this morning as it is unseasonably hot and sunny. (Yay!) I had to find it for him in a drawer that I never, ever go into. He claims that he has never, ever put the sunscreen in that drawer. Neither one of us can remember what we had for supper last night - blind leading the blind!

Not long ago one of my teens was talking on the cell phone with a stressed and worried voice while frantically looking for something in every room of the house...

She looks at me with wide eyes, covers the receiver and mouths "I can't find my cell phone!"

She'll never live that down.

The other day I left the house to take a cello lesson. I had been to the guy's house twice: once about 30 years ago, and then once more, last month. I was planning to check the address before I left but forgot. So I looked him up on my phone while in the car (didn't have his phone number, either), found two street names associated with his name, no street address. One of them rang a bell, so I went to that street -- and then had no idea which house it was. They were row houses that all looked pretty much the same.

Luckily, there were some people outside working in their yards, so I asked if they knew him, and they looked at me blankly. But then one of them pointed to a woman who was walking toward us and said, "Ask her, she's lived here a long time."

Her answer: "Oh, he moved 15 years ago! But come inside, I'll look up his address for you." (I had my cello in hand, so it was obvious I had no nefarious purpose.) She had his cell phone number on a list right in her kitchen -- I called it and explained what was going on and that I'd be there in a few minutes. But I still forgot to ask his address! As the lady of the house was looking up his address, another woman arrived; the first asked her, "Hey, what's [teacher]'s address?" And the second woman reeled it off.

After thanking them profusely, I drove over to the guy's house a few blocks away, and as I arrived, he was on the phone. When he disconnected, he told me, "I just heard that you ran into my ex-wife."

(All was okay. Apparently they have a cordial relationship. But still, I felt like such a dork. Obviously, the first street I went to was the one I had been to 30 years ago. In my defense, sort of, both streets are very much alike, and in the same neighborhood.)

(The bone-headed part was leaving the house without any of the information I needed to get where I was going! It was like one of those performance anxiety dreams.)
