We are trying to take a family picture every month this year, as opposed to last year when we took maybe one. January's attempt obviously leaves only room for improvement this month.
This post is unrelated to the picture. Just so you don't get confused.
Don't you hate it when you think all the way through some conundrum and then forget you thought it all the way through and bring it up with someone then sound like a moron because it had an obvious answer and you knew it but you forgot you knew it?
Me: Hey, sister-in-law... I'm now going to give you this super long-whiney explanation as to why I'd like you to babysit Roman on Tuesday... not sure why I feel the need to whiney-ask because I know you'd say yes if I just asked normally but I can't fight the urge so... please please please!!
Sister-in-law: Well you know I would but did we not establish like 10 minutes ago that I am going out of town tomorrow and won't be back all week?
Me: Ohhhh yeaaaaah! So THAT'S why I felt all hesitant to bring up the babysitting! And yes, I do pay attention to what you say, and I already had this whole conversation with myself in my head. So sorry. Carry on.
This happens to me daily. If only I could remember my inner dialogues! Does this happen to anyone else?
