Falling Through The Cracks

In the past week, I’ve realized I forgot two important to-do items. Well, actually, I didn’t forget them… I knew they were impending, I wrote them down in my calendar, and I set reminders on my phone for both of them.

The only problem was that I put both of them on the wrong dates. I missed paying a traffic ticket by a week (oops) and a court date for the guy who broke into my car by two weeks (double oops.)

How do you convince yourself that a specific event is supposed to occur on a certain day… and be so completely wrong?

I feel somewhat less intelligent today.
