Friday Confessionals

I am a horrible listener and even worse remember. I'm not sure if this makes me a horrible friend or just a person who needs to pay the F^%$ attention.

My friends tell me things they've done, places they are going, etc. I'll be damned if I can remember that when it actually happens. I have one friend who will remember that 3 weeks ago I told her I was getting my hair cut at 8:00 on Saturday morning and then she might even call and see if I need her to watch Zack.

Me... yeah not so much. She could tell me on Thursday night that she is going out of town on Friday and without fail I will call Friday night and ask her what she's up to.

I feel bad about this, I really do but I do NOT remember these things. I have a hard enough time remembering my own schedule that's why I keep it in a planner.

So if you tell me you are doing something and I call you and act all oblivious, it's not an act, I'm really that oblivious.

Yeah... me too... I am not good at remembering the details of my own life let alone other peoples!

I share your affliction! A good friend of mine who is the type who remembers what you said you were doing gets annoyed when I am oblivious to what she told me about her schedule the day before. I think I will send her your posting :-0

At the same time, I am also someone who more intuitively picks up on others emotions, things that bring them joy, etc. - I just can't keep track of their schedules!
