Midnight jottings

A funny thing happened to me last week. Funny ha ha, not funny peculiar.

I've mentioned before that I always keep a notepad and pen by my bed. Well, one night a piece of conversation came into my head and I knew I had to write it down. I always write in the dark for fear of waking my DH. I line my thumb up on the side of the pad and move it down as I write so that I know where each row starts. It's never let me down. The rows might be a bit crooked but I don't overwrite anything.

That night it didn't work. But not in the way you might think.

My pen ran out! I had the first line very clear, the second faded a little and by the third and fourth I could read nothing. I hadn't even pressed on hard enough for an imprint.

And I can't remember what I wrote!

The moral to the story is - always use a pencil.
