As near as I can tell, this is what my wife says to herself each time she leaves the house.

"Ok, I'm ready to go. What am I forgetting? Hmmmm.... I've got my keys, my wallet, my cell phone.... Oh, I know! I forgot to turn on all the lights in the house! There's this one, that one, that one waaaay over there, and this obscure one that Mike doesn't even know about it. There! So bright! It's like I'm creating a photon parade everywhere I go! Yay!"

And then, *poof*, she's gone.

You sound just like my former spouse with that turning off all the lights thing. Why bother? You're just gonna turn them all back on again when you return home. ;-)

Does that mean photons didn't exist before they were discovered? Hm?

Mike said...

Nrd2, stay away from the beeps! It's the dark side!

Jocelyn, don't encourage Nrd2.

Tonya, I can get behind that logic with beds. I see no reason to make my bed when I'm just going to mess it up again. Unmade beds, however, don't waste energy and heat up my already too-warm house.

jr, yes. No, wait.. no! Maybe. Don't get all quantum on me!

Outloud and to herself checklist. I do it too. I bet I check the coffee pot and stove five times before I actually lock the door and the lights, on, on, on, except the one above the stove, off. Yep, have a ritual, works for me and I bet her ritual works for her.

I didn't realize you were married to Keyser Soze.

Mike said...

zelda1, I sure hope her ritual works for her. It needs to be working for somebody.

Neel, if I had had to guess who was going to spot the Usual Suspects reference, I would have picked you.

Thanks, Mike.

The greatest trick Karl Rove ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.

I think Hank took Mike with her. Where's Mike?

Mike said...

Neel, :)

Janelle, I'm here! I just keep getting inundated with people wanting some of my time. Makes it hard to blog. Being popular is hard.
