If it makes you feel any better, I have occasionally put a load of laundry in, added detergent, waited the right amount of time, and started loading the clothes from the washer into the dryer before eventually twigging that they aren't wet. Because I never pushed the button to start the wash cycle.I've also left my raw dinner in a cold oven for over an hour. Life is an adventure when you never know when your brain will arbitrarily decide to skip a step. :)
It's so comforting to know that I'm not alone out here on my absentminded branch.
heheh. So done that! and embarrassingly often.
I've totally done what Catherine's done. With the laundry, not with dinner. I've also left a load of washed towels in the washer for over a week until they smelled like a 1970's pool and I had to wash them all over again. I wasn't even on holiday or anything - I walked past that washing machine SEVERAL TIMES A DAY and did not twig that there were slowly mouldering towels inside it.
Oh God. And the world is in our hands. Between us we have the spiritual, environmental and educational futures of a whole generation in our hands. And we can't even get the washing done properly. We're so fucked.
I prefer to think that it's BECAUSE we're so dedicated to Higher Thoughts that we end up doing this shit. I mean, there's got to be a reason that I'm not also running around going, "Oh, shit, was I supposed to take the greenhouse gases OUT of the air first?" :)... What did pools smell like in the 1970s?
