Quelle embarassment!

I got on the bus Saturday night and took my seat.  Everyone on the bus was looking at me.  I thought I was being recognized for being in a commercial that is currently playing on bus video screens.

Instead, I learned, from another passenger who could speak English, that I had forgotten to swipe my bus card when I boarded.  This is like not paying.  

I corrected my oversight.  I returned to my seat about I then thought about the previous times I had boarded the bus, taken my seat, and wondered if I had remembered to swipe my bus card.

I also wondered if there had been times that I had gone to work, and forgotten to put pants on.

I am middle-aged now, so my memory is beginning to deteriorate.
