    It used to happen to me often.

    The worst I think was when I walked into the room of a colleague to ask a question and then had no idea of why I was there. Not only did I forget the question, but I was standing in the room going through the alphabet to see if I could remember my colleague's name. Fortunately a...

    Now Why Did I Come In Here?

    It happens a lot. A lot. Often I'll go to the kitchen for a cup of tea, forget what I came for, forget that I forgot, come up with another reason to be there, do that, go back to my study, and wonder where my tea is.

    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.

    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.
