Sometimes, the crackberry, Covey planner, handy notepad or sharp memory are just not around or to be relied upon when something needs to be recorded…so, what’s a multi-tasker to do?

Oh, and it makes a lovely impression.
But impression be damned; I needed to remember the info … create an ftp folder, originate binder cover art and coordinate the layout of a final report. Done, done and done.

“What’s that on your hand?” asked HM (aka Mr. IT).
“What? Oh, that,” I said, glancing at my hand where the words “Final Rpt” had blurred to “final R…” followed by a red smear. “It’s just a quick list of things I didn’t want to forget. A stopgap.”
“Hmmm…must have been a busy day, eh?”
Funny what happens in a day that can make you smile, and recall the girlish doodlings of elementary school.
It’s a poor workman who blames her tools. (proverb)
