I have always had an issue with my short term memory and as such I do perform certain things in certain ways. If I’m distracted I loose track and effectively forget what I was doing.
Today was such a day. Having a hankering for some popcorn. I got out the microwave bowl and added the popcorn. My son was running about and chasing the cats. It was quite a scene to witness.
A few minutes later the microwave was beeping at me. I’d not only forgotten that I put popcorn in the microwave but also forgot to cover the bowl. When I opened the door popcorn flowed out.
After cleaning up and giving the microwave a good clean I finally settled down to enjoy my snack, although by now I’d missed half the movie I was watching. Then my wife interjects and says why didn’t you use a brown paper bag, so much easier. Learn something new everyday. At least the microwave is clean.
