Ditz of the Day Award
Sometimes I surprise even myself.
I admit that I'm often running on empty. On automatic. Without thinking.
But there was no excuse for this.
My laptop and printer are in the kitchen. My "supplies" are in the basement. The basement is cool...and damp..not wet, but summertime in the northeast is always damp and we don't have a dehumidifier in the basement.
So my envelopes are "damp."
The last time I tried to print out damp envelopes they would not run through the printer...paper jam
So I dried them out in a warm oven....perfect.
I thought I could do this again
BUT I left the envelopes in the oven just seconds too long...
And the envelopes all melted shut...
No, I could not open the envelopes, which pretty much rendered them useless.
So now I am using them for making my "to do" lists
Which earns me the Ditz of the Day Award.
Because who bakes their envelopes anyway?
