“Hey, what’s that?”

I was sitting at my desk, doing my work thing, when a coirker noticed that I had something written on my hand

Like so.

“Oh, I need to pay my property taxes today. This is to remind me.”

“Why don’t you just write yourself a note?”

I point to the writing on my hand.

“I did.”

I have a hard time remembering things – after the Things broke my car door handles off it took me months to remember to order new ones – and writing myself a note on a piece of paper doesn’t usually work because I lose the paper. The only way I can remember anything important is if I can see the reminder, so I write it on my hand.

So after [mumblety] days, I finally remembered to pay my property taxes!

Now if I could only remember what this red X is for, I’ll be set.
