Forgetting important things has always been a passive habit of mine.
Often when I travel, I get this lingering feeling that I might have left something behind.
Really, sometimes I just wish I could forget forgetting for once.
Generally, I forget to pick up my mom from the grocery shop.
Of course she can’t reach me through my cell-phone.
That’s because I’d often forget to recharge its battery too!
Ting tong! Wonder who that could be?
Evening MOM, I know I forgot again, sorry... (That's one angry mom!)
Now, where was I? Oh, forget it... ~waves a white flag!!!~

P.S: Just to be clear, I never forget to pick up my mom from the grocery shop!!

  1. Cute piece. I am so forgettful it isn't funny!

  2. It is easy to forget other things when the mind is busy writing poetry and prose. I am so glad to know that you don't forget your mother, though.

  3. I have to leave yellow stickee notes all over
    the apartment - Cute.

  4. Things are bad. Wait till you are my age and then see what you forget...just about everything! Poor Mom!

  5. @Sheilagh Lee, @Angel, @Rahul Bhatia, Thank you and many thanks for visiting my blog.

    @MaryA, you are right. I am a little forgetful when it comes to remembering smaller things. But can't forget my mom even if I tried :)

    @Marie, haha, even I do the same. I've even got a post-it on my bedroom wall that says: "you are supposed to be studying" :P .. I just get easily distracted.

    @oldegg, oh that's too bad. Hope my memory improves as I age!!
