We all need our little reminders, don’t we?

Don’t forget — Google Image

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?

I’m sure she never did it on a test. Positive.

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.”

Mormon underwear

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.

Reminder Underwear?

I am never going to be able to look at Mitt without giggling again.
