Of all the things I’ve lost, I miss my mind the most

There was a commercial break in the baseball game, just now, so I went into my bathroom to take my nightly meds.

I picked up my cup and turned on the water. Then I noticed the cup was wet.

I have no recollection of using that cup today, save for when I brushed my teeth this morning.

But the cup is wet. Which probably means I already took my pills. More specifically, it most likely means I just took my pills within the last hour or two.

No recollection.

So. Which is the more logical course of action? Assume that I am old and senile, already took them, and miss a night if I’m wrong? Or wonder if I have gremlins or poltergeists who were thirsty, and risk a double-dose by taking my meds now? Gah.

I guess it’s time to start using one of those weekly pill container thingies. From there it’s only a matter of time before I start stuffing dinner rolls into my purse at a restaurant, you know. But given that that’s likely to happen if I screw up my meds a few days in a row, anyway, what the heck.
