I should have known better, and I did
Yesterday, while making yogurt, a wonderful line occurred to me for the book I'm revising. I knew that I should have set my spoon aside immediately, fetched pen and paper, and jotted the idea down.
Did I do that? No. Instead, I repeated it to myself five times and then went about my business.
Do I remember the line now that I'm ready to add it? No.
Yeah, I'm a right idiot.
