but it's messing with me anyway.
For the last two or three years I've been carrying a pager. I'm not now, but I keep catching myself before going somewhere with "Where's the pager? Oh, that's right." Or I'm somewhere and check to make sure it's there and have a moment of 'Oh crap!'.
I was in the grocery store a bit earlier and one of the wheelchairs started backing up, 'beep-beep' and I thought "Dammit, now what?" before remembering "I don't have that anymore."
I wonder how long it takes to get over that conditioning?
