I was slated to drive into the city today to go to a meeting that I considered quite important. I could have hooked into a telecast of it, but I really like to have the paper documents in my hands so that I can write on them. (Old habits die hard.)
When I woke up to news that the school buses had been cancelled and that a major snow dump was forecast, I decided to forget the hour+ drive into a city clogged by bus strike traffic and enroll for the podcast. And so I phoned the contact number and asked to be included.
After a short, polite delay, I was informed that the meeting was yesterday. And when I looked at my calendar, there was the Tuesday circled.
I think I need a cup of coffee and a new brain.
