The written word is not always more accurate than the memory…

The Froggy advised he had scheduled a dentist’s appointment on Wednesday morning which I (unbegrudgingly) duly noted as requiring an early wake-up call . A piece of paper then appeared on the dining table last night, in the Froggy’s own handwriting, stating that the appointment was in fact on Tuesday morning.

And so we fell for the old “if it’s written it must be true” trap. We readied earlier than usual this morning and went out of our respective ways to get him to the dental surgery on time… only to find that his memory was the more correct of the two accounts of the same event! We now “look forward” to repeating the exercise tomorrow…
