Absent Mind situations

Afternoon all,

I was wondering if this happens with you or not. Last night, after finishing horse riding I couldn't find my car keys. I thought I miss-placed them in the equestrian centre. After long looking around I found them in my jodhpur (pocket).

Similar situation happened when I had to meet up with my friends in restaurant. One of my friend called me and asked me to come quickly as they were waiting for me. I spent ~15mins looking for my phone which was on my hand (even when I was talking to him I didn't realize I was talking to him with my phone).

When he asked me why I was taking so long, and when I said because I can't find my phone. He started laughing and said what are you talking with then?

The question is, does it happen with you? Do you get absent minded sometimes?

Regards

Jehanzeb

Haha ohh boy do I ever! I can spend a good quarter of an hour looking for a pen that's sitting right in front of me.

I have them a lot. I find the more I have on my mind the more falls out
Memory is one of those things that got put in backwards. It should get better the older you get not worse

I spent 1/2 hour looking for my reading glasses last night and they were on my head!!!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

LOL. Yep, but I refer to them as my bald moments.
Or all timers moments or just plain old crs moments.

Probably my best ones are when talking about my kids
And I can't remember their name, LOL.

OH MY GOSH!!! I hate it when I'm having a "talk" with my kids and I get to the part of the sentence when I'm needing to add their name and I pause and they say their name.....UGH...the whole point is lost as I stammer...Dang it...lol....You KNOW I was talking to YOU!!

Happened just last week.
I was talking on the phone and started to wonder what the time was, so I checked all my pockets, bag and table (I was in school) for the phone to check the time :roll:

That happens sometimes.

Once I took a mug, fiddled it in my hands and thought "which was the name of this item?"

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."
