Episode #836 in Which our Intrepid Author Discovers She is an Idiot.

Dear Self,

Good for you for remembering to buy milk on the way home last night. However, we should like to point out that said milk will not actually be available for consumption today due to your decision to leave it in the car.

Overnight.

In case you hadn't realized it, milk requires refrigeration.

We expect you will do better next time.

Sincerely,

The Voices in Your Head

P.S. Regarding that phone call this morning - just let it go. You'll be happier.

Haha! I have done that. Of course, if I do that now, the darned milk will freeze solid. We call the shelf in the garage the 'overflow refrigerator'. My kids just did that with a juice container. Opened it up and poured out a glass or two then left it on the counter overnight. I put it in the fridge the next day. They are still drinking it. And they are still kicking. I guess that means it was okay. Enjoy the day!

I hate it when I buy milk and leave it in the car :|

Good thing you remembered that the milk was in the car before it began to smell -- badly!

LOL...Can I just say that my grandmother at least got the ham in the house...and stored the bag in the closet in the basement...for 3 weeks before my mom & I found it! Thank goodness for vaccuum sealed packaging. And no, this wasn't a senile moment.
Good luck with the new milk....

Oh yes...those unforgettable adult distracted deficit moments. That's what I call my ADD...mind going in one direction and the body in another. Like forgetting to put the check in the envelop with the bill and then wondering later why the gas or electricity was turned off???? Only to find the same check in your wallet when you are angrily confronting the poor person who had the temerity to have to be on duty the day you showed up!

Definitely ADD.

The voices in your head are very polite compared to the voices in my head.
