Got home by a reasonable hour due to lack of traffic (thanks, vacationing commuters!). Struck by sudden headache, I went to feed mewling kitty and noticed that I was on his last can of food. Called M, who was going to pick some up earlier, and proceeded to leave voicemail as follows:
“Hey, just wondering if you grabbed any kitten food or if you were going to do that on your way home, since we’re running — oh, I just saw the bag of kitten food that you bought. Um, right on the island in front of me… ”
Ever looked at something and still managed to look right past it? Story of my life.
