We all need our little reminders, don’t we?
Me, I have my iPhone and office calendar set for 12:30 on the dot. It says:
Otherwise I forget to take my pills. It isn’t that by 12:30 life is no longer worth living. Generally.
I am so forgetful that I make lists of what to buy at the store and then promptly forget to take the list. I’ve developed a habit of keeping track of the 5 things I most need to get on my fingers. That saves me a trip or two, but I do end up standing in the grocery aisle counting on my fingers. If you don’t hear from me for a while, you’ll know that I have been committed or sent back to kindergarten.
Famous people even need reminders! Remember when Sarah Palin got caught with the answers on her hand?
Well, just this morning I learned that some folks put their reminders in, well, other places. OK, they put them in their underwear. I don’t know about you, but I would really feel, well, embarrassed to have to check my underwear for my reminder. It is considered especially rude in Produce. But apparently some folks need:
“[A] constant reminder that desires, appetites, and passions are to be kept within the bounds the Lord has set.”
Now I wouldn’t want to be the first to bring this up, and I’m really glad to report that the topic has come up before. Remember, Bill Clinton was famously asked: “Boxers or Briefs.”
So I think it is a fair question to ask of Mitt (and Ann) Romney.
I am never going to be able to look at Mitt without giggling again.
