The actual conversation was too long to quote, but in the interest of fairness, I wanted to post another ‘Idiot of the Day’ where _I_ am the idiot, because… well… I deserve it.
I was chatting with a friend last night, and we were commisserating about the sudden change in the weather. Neither of us wanted to crank up the air conditioning yet, and we were discussing how each of our bedroom temperatures was on the border of being uncomfortable. We each had our windows open, and had reduced our blankets/quilts, etc., when my friend mentioned that he wished he had a fan.
I was about to say, “Yeah, me too,” when I realized that I had a giant ceiling fan right over my bed, that I had forgotten about. Instead, my response was, “OMG I forgot I have a ceiling fan in here. DUH.”
In my defense, I moved into this house in November, and had not turned the fan on yet. Even though I can clearly see it is there, right over my bed, I guess my brain was ignoring it.
I should probably take a little tour of my own house today, and see what else I am not seeing?
