Daddy’s Home (2/7/11)

For years, my wife used to make a simple request of me whenever we were in the car. “When we get home,” she’d say, “remind me to [call / text / e-mail] so-and-so.” Variations on this request included, “Remind me to pick up [a particular foodstuff] at the grocery store” and, “Remind me to bring [this important piece of paperwork] to the office tomorrow. It’s really, really important!” Now I’m an organized guy, but that doesn’t mean I have the ability to organize someone else’s schedule in my head. In fact, nine times out of ten, I’d forget to jostle my wife’s memory. Needless to say, her requests have tapered off. That’s a win-win, if you ask me.
