Aww Crap!

About forgot - today is Towel Day. As in
... a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: nonhitchhiker) discovers that a hitchhiker has his towel with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, washcloth, soap, tin of biscuits, flask, compass, map, ball of string, gnat spray, wet-weather gear, space suit etc., etc. Furthermore, the strag will then happily lend the hitchhiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitchhiker might accidentally have "lost". What the strag will think is that any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is, is clearly a man to be reckoned with.
So long and thanks for all the fish!

I took my towel to work today and kept it sitting on the counter allllll day. No one commented on it.
I weep for the future. *sniffle*
Not really. Just means I'll be prepared and well.... they'll be running down the road, screaming about zombies, and not a towel in sight. Tsk tsk.

I had the ol' Someone Else's Problem field generator running all day, so no one gave a crap what I was doing.
