I'M SORRY I LOST THE SCRAP OF PAPER ON WHICH YOU OUTLINED YOUR PLANS FOR THE FUTURE
Can you really not remember them? You outlined them in such detail. The divorce, the emphasis on whole grains... You were determined to live more alphabetically, as I recall. Or was it more phonetically?
Think: What were you going to allow whom to see you wearing, and when? I know that was on there, and I'm pretty sure it was underlined. If you can get that down again, it may jog your memory. If not, well, lucky you: you get to plan your future all over again. It will be almost like living twice. Have you always wanted to reread Bartleby the Scrivener? Or look away, blushing, as the northbound spring caressed the expectant fields of Indiana? Well, now you can, someday.
Look, if you're really so worried about the future—which I doubt, seeing as you left your plans for it on my coffee table—consider that the source of your anxiety is constantly shrinking. You have less and less future to worry about, is what I'm saying.
Maybe it's time to draw up a list of your plans for the past.
