Outbound on a short-notice trip, i carefully packed my rolling briefcase for a few days on the road. With absolutely no interest in repeating my forgetful and expensive mistake from the last trip, i made sure i had all essentials. Chargers, travel toiletries baggie, electronics, reading material… Check, Check, Check, Check… and DOUBLE CHECK.
Leaving the house at 0-dark-thirty for a morning flight, i even carefully checked my wallet to assure drivers license, credit cards, and cash were secure. Carefully putting both the travel bag and my purse in the back seat. Staring at them. Knowing that there was NO WAY i was going to forget them this time.
Hopped in the car, backed out of the driveway and was about a quarter mile down the street when i realized i was barefoot.
Ummm… close. so very close…
