“Why do you tie your car key to your shoelace?”

“Because I don’t want to hold my car key when I’m running! What if I drop it?”

… “You know that the running pants you’re wearing right now have a little pocket in the back for your key, right?”

“No. No, I did not.”

“Jeez, it’s cold in here.”

“I know, sorry. It’ll take just a minute for the car to warm up.”

Click. 

“Wait, what button did you just hit?”

“You know that you have seat warmers in this car, right?”

“No. No, I did not.”

“I’LL TAKE IT.”

“Um, wait. Wait. We just got here. Did you ask how much the rent is? Does it have heat? Does it have a BATHROOM? Did you ask anything?”

“No. No, I did not.”

That clueless person in the above vignettes is me. All three of those stories are true. [And I did take that apartment and it did have a bathroom, thankfully. It just didn’t, you know, have any closets or storage areas. But it was still a great deal!] Reading back over them, I’m somewhat amazed I can manage to make it to the office every day, let alone survive intact for thirty-two years.

I don’t know what it is- I have a blind spot for things that others just don’t seem to have. It’s a combination of dreamy flightyness (the kind that has Anne Shirley drifting off shore in a canoe with no oars), optimism (I fall in love with the positives of every apartment I walk into and refuse to see anything else. God help us when I buy a house.) and… I don’t know. Something undefined- a shrugging indifference for details.

Luckily, as the above stories will attest, I’m surrounded by people who DO notice things. Thanks to my friends, I find my way. And they only laugh at me about it for, like, an hour or two. At most. I think mostly they laugh at my wild delight when I discover something I’ve actually OWNED this whole time and didn’t realize; like finding an old Christmas present you never gave someone and now you get to keep it because it’s July. That’s what my life is like.

And now my brother is here! My brother is here! He moved to Maine! Someone to FEED, you guys! A skinny guy who was ALSO raised by my mother and, thus, also appreciates food more than air itself. Someone who will eat the whole platter of Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Egg Rolls.

How lucky is that? How wonderful is that? Another person to help me find the things that I didn’t know I already had.
