put a lid on it

Several times in the last couple of weeks I’ve started riding off without my helmet. I’m not sure what is causing this sudden lack of attention. For the past few years the helmet has been an automatic part of my cycling routine - I’ve always worn my helmet even though I think it’s rather pointless. So far I’ve only gotten as far as the end of the driveway before turning around and retrieving the lid, but I see where this is headed (no pun intended) and I know that eventually I’m going to forget it completely. I’ll go about my business and return to my bike and be like all, “Dude, someone swiped my helmet! What a bummer, man. I guess I’ll have to ride home without it.” Then I’ll get home and be like all, “Oh, there it is! What’s wrong with me? I’m such a space cadet.”
