It is a well documented fact that I am a Post It addict. I have all sorts of colors, shapes, sizes. I have some with lines on them, and some with my initials.
I use Post It notes to plot novels, to remind me of appointments, to jot notes that I need while e-filing withholding taxes with the state and feds.
While my SIL and I were at the hospital last week, she told me of an unusual use of a Post It note.
Her eldest son, now in college, had bunk-beds in his room. She once found a Post It note stuck to the under side of the upper bunk. When she asked him what it was for, he told her that he had thought of something during the day that he wanted to ponder, so he jotted it on a Post It and stuck it there to remind himself. His best pondering time (like mine) was right before he fell asleep at night.
What a great concept! I often have thoughts skip through my head during the day when I'm busy and don't have time to ponder them. Post It Time!!!
I've decided to stick my pondering notes to the lampshade on my bedside table.
So, how do you feel about Post It notes, and how do you remember to ruminate on those fleeting thoughts?
