Do you remember when it first happened? When you first caught a glimpse of a thread that was unraveling? The first time that you were SO sure of something, only to find out that you were in fact SO wrong? I do. It's a weird feeling for me to say the least. I borrowed a movie from my best friend...I would tell you which one...but rule number 1 about this movie is to never talk about this movie. I was so sure I had returned it. She asked me about it...more than once, reminding me: "Hey, on your way over...do you think you can bring the movie?" It kinda aggravated me. I distinctly remember putting the movie in the car and taking it back...how could she NOT remember that?
Well...because it never happened. YEARS later, while unpacking from a move, I open a box that held the contents of a drawer that was under my TV console and I see the movie. But...wait...I REMEMBER taking it back! Was that a dream? A glitch in the matrix? Did I absentmindedly pick it back up that night? Did I not take it out of my purse? Did I even go over there that night? Wait...whats real? OKAY hold the presses...its not THAT dramatic. But at the same time it does make me wonder. How many things have I been SO sure of, yet SO wrong about?
I have seen things with these eyes, and I have written blogs about how we filter things through our unique perspectives which is why two people can witness the same event yet state they have seen something totally different. But this is different. This is me... distinctly remembering an event that, obviously, never happened. Is it a "senior moment" in my life? Is it insomnia? ;-) I don't know. But I do like IKEA...maybe I need a support group...bahahahahaha! In all seriousness, I do know that a couple of years ago you could not have convinced me that I didn't return that movie. I was so confident that I had.
