I lost an entire day last week.
No, it's not like I had a 24-hour day in my backpack and set it on top of my car, forgetting it and taking off.
No, somehow I just missed a day.
I've been working assiduously not to do that for two months but as the days take the same shape, that's not as easily said as done.
And as a long-time daily journalist, I was often confused as to the day. That's because we're all working at least a week ahead if not more. So when you go to the bank or sign a check, you have to check on the date and the day. But that's because I would have been working on the editorial page three days ahead and reading Outdoors content a week out. Writing a column for the following Sunday and considering the arc of how that column plays out with others.
Still, I don't think I lost a day. I just jumbled them.
I wrote a blog piece saying something happened the previous day -- I thought Wednesday. Actually, the previous day was Thursday and I don't know what happened to it. But I can tell you it was the same day as the others that week and suspect it was lost in the sameness as the other days. Certainly, I have a computer and a phone -- access to all the information in the world -- yet hate to check for something so basic as a day.
I guess I have to now.
Would it be bad to take out a classified ad: LOST: Thursday. If found please contact www.thehomelesseditor.com. No questions asked.
Peace unto you my brothers and sisters.
