Confessions of a Goof: Goof #2 Letters Page

In the Goof #1 letters page, I confessed that I am a goof myself.

In the Goof #2 letters page I show you how wide the disease is. Here’s a preview of the Goof #2 letters page.

Following last issue’s confession that I’m a goof, here is a small taste of my own goofiness as exhibited in the real world in the last four weeks:

Item #1: I was in a great rush and already late to get somewhere. I parked the car as quickly as I could, exited it, and started running… only to get thrown back at the car because my coat was caught in the closed door.
Item #2: A toddler was playing with a cup of tea on a table at a friends’ house. In attempting to save the table from spilled tea, I reached for the cup of tea only to spill another full cup of tea. I quickly apologized and started cleaning the mess, only to spill the first cup of tea in the process.

These are real-life events. Don’t laugh. Don’t you dare laugh! This is a harsh reality I have to live with every day.

Being a life-long goof has its good sides. For example, forty years of walking into doors and bumping my head into corners of low shelves have made me hyper-vigilant against things like doors and the fact that they open on occasion. Sometimes in my direction.

When you’re a goof, it’s good to be surrounded by supportive friends who understand your condition and know that God made you that way for a reason.

For example, every couple of days something like this happens: It’s morning, almost time to leave the house, when my wife comes from behind me and whispers in my ear, “You were going to put on pants.” “Oh, right,” I say. Only fifteen seconds earlier, I had declared I was going to put on my pants (I declare these things; don’t look too deep into that). Then a stray thought came to me, and when I snapped out of it, 1.5 seconds later, I began to look around trying to remember what I was searching for. The end of this story has been told elsewhere on this page.

I don’t only forget what I was going to do a few seconds ago. I also forget words. Now, I’m a writer, so I’m good with words. But I’ve been forgetting words since I was six. I mean really simple words.

It becomes embarrassing when you have to have to tell your four year old child, “Hey! Get down! Get down! Don’t stand on the… on the… What’s that thing you’re standing on?” “Table,” she says. “Right. Don’t stand on the table!”

So… I’m a goof. So are other people.

But… Does a goof really have to stay a goof? Can a goof become not a goof? Why are goofs goofs? These are actually questions we’re going to look at in Goof. Starting, in fact, next issue, when our hero, Nick Knickerbocker, the unfortunately-named Captain Gorgeous, gets too close a look at his own goofiness. Which brings us to next issue.

Next Issue: [Spoiler alert. Deleted.]

Are you a goof? Do you have similar stories to tell? Do you think goofs can stop being goofs? Why do you think we’re goofs in the first place?

Goof #2 will be out later this week. Have you read Goof #1?
