Mummies write lists. Lots of them. We write our first list because our brains are like slurried overcooked potatoes and we know that if we write it down we WON’T FORGET. Then we write another new list because we can’t remember what we did with the first list. And after a while we resign ourselves to the fact that it doesn’t matter how many lists we write or lose, we always forget something off one of the lists. So we write as many lists as we can in as many places we can in the hope that one day we can combine all our lists into some kind of master list and thereby salvage some of that raw potato and stuff it back in our slurry-like brains in order to feign some semblance of normal intelligence. Or at least not forget to buy some potatoes.

So now you know.
