How To Make Lists, by Meg's Mind.
Step 1: Get a piece of paper. For best results, make it small and loose leaf. You will want it to be as easy to misplace as possible. See Figure 1.
Step 2: Using poor penmanship, write down a vertically-oriented group of categories for which you need to makes lists. See Figure 2.
Step 3: Shove this paper into a purse, bag, pocket, or other inconspicuous place where it will get crumpled or lost. See Figure 3.
Step 4: Find this piece of paper approximately one month later. It will no longer make sense.
Step 5: Repeat steps 1 - 4 over and over again.
