Dumb thing(s) you did today...

A few of mine, all at work unfortunately:

(1) Kicked the toilet with my sandal-covered foot when attempting to flush
(2) Tripped up the stairs in a big time way
(3) Snacked on Kashi Go Lean Crunch. If you know anything about this product, you'll understand.
(4) Knocked my coffee across my desk while gesturing wildly


Discuss.

On a daily basis, it would be easier to list the things I did that weren't dumb.

Asked a fellow engineer "What's this?" in reference to something on his bookshelf.

It's very small, incredibly complex, and takes longer to explain than I cared to actually listen.

I work from home. That opens up all kinds of possibilities.
-I opened the door to take out my old dog for a walk during lunch and the young one ran out. Spent a few minutes wrangling her.
-I tripped over a set of dumbbells.

I told a school director that I did not want my picture on the school web site. He felt I should be on the site, as everyone else in the school is pictured. Everyone else in the school are actual employees of the school system... Me? A lowly consultant who bills for time. He was not happy.

I had a follow up doc's appointment today.
Something buzzing landed in my collar. I snatched my shirt off in the middle of the waiting room and freaked out an old lady because of a fly down my back.

Mmmm roasted pumpkin. You could also make a nice soup with some ginger and nutmeg. Or put in muffins with dark chocolate chips...

--yesterday's story - left helmet for <5 minutes at corner store parking lot - gone. Total my fault.

--- then get a phone call from ex-roommate that he had my helmet!!

go pick up my helmet that some wonderful man I used to talk to in my old neighborhood, who went out of his way to pick up my helmet that stoopid me left by my bike as I was talking to him and unlocking my bike, etc - and he walked it up to where I used to live, cause he knew where I was because I talked to him and his wife and kids on the corner street.

He was smart and wonderful and I on the otherhand was rather dumb for forgetting my helmet.

And I saw him tonite on the way to where I used to live and I slid in as he walked to the corner store and he would not accept anything from me as a good favor or anything, he just really wanted me to get my helmet back.

And I thanked him several times and told him that it's just wonderful that good guys do exist.

So hopefully I patched up some dumb things I did yesterday and today.
