    Some of you know that I have been going on yoga training. It began last August, continued this past week, and would end this coming week. Don't ask me why I did not broadcast it to the whole ep village before and why I'm letting you know now. There are reasons then. There are...

    I can't remember how many times I've done this and had to stand there for a minute thinking about why I entered a certain room.

    Oh boy yeah, I have done that

    so many times. Go to a room and completely forget why I am there. Often have to go back to what I was doing before so I remember what I needed when I went to get it.

    One summer day, I bought a half dozen ice

    creams. The next day, I could not find them in the refrigerator. I realized I forgot to pick them up from the bicycle basket. I went outside but the ice creams had been reduced to plastic bags with colored chemical liquids.

    Hahaha... Who haven't done this?

    With so much on the mind, it's most likely to happen. How about going into a room to find something that you already got on, like your glasses on your face. Yeah, who does that? Me...

    Did it all the time for awhile.

    Ended up walking in circles a lot at work because of this. Turns out it was a side effect of the medications I was given for nerve pain.

    I bought a cold canned tea at a vending machine.

    I was preoccupied with a thought and forgot to pick it up and left. 5 minutes later I went back to the vending machine but the tea was gone. I gave someone a small present.

    It happens almost everytime I got to the

    kitchen. I walk in, go to the fridge, open it, look around, close it then leave. Go back to my room, lay on my bed and remember I was really thirsty. Usually I get too lazy to get something to drink though so I have to call my dad....On the house phone.

    I poured myself some raspberry lemonade to

    drink, and then I turned in my TV (leaving the lemonade in the kitchen) after a few minutes I realized I was thirsty so I went to the kitchen to get some lemonade. I got the lemonade out of the fridge, got a cup out, and the I saw my cup from a few minutes ago
