"Henry! Henry Jekyll! I'm coming down the hall to see you!"
"Just a minute, Charles," called Hyde. "I'm ... uh ... dressing."
"OMG!" thought Hyde in desperation. "It's such a complicated formula. Why didn't I write it down?!"
"Let's see … yes, half a beaker of the blue bottle, third from the left, bottom shelf. Then 25 milligrams from the yellow bottle, top shelf.... no, no, that's middle shelf!"
"Henry, got to come in now!"
"Why didn't I write it down?!! Okay, a swig of this green bottle, hope for the best!"
"Hello, Henry. Just wanted to return this Robert Louis Stevenson book I borrowed."
"Thank you, Charles."
"Oh, and Henry?"
"I'd humbly suggest you either get your hair cut eight feet shorter or learn to WRITE IT DOWN!"~~~~~~~~~~~
Let's hope you're a bit better at extricating yourself from hairy situations than our friend Hyde. In any event, here's a lesson we all should learn: Always write it down! Especially when there's going to be a quiz later that goes on your permanent record.
