    This happen often. That

    or I'll be in the way to do something and completely forget what I was doing and the harder I try to remember the further I get from knowing what it was.

    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

    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.

    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...

    Not Once But Twice!

    I know it happens to a lot of people but my one experience was for the books. I went into the kitchen to get something and totally forgot what I went there for. I puttered around, hoping that I would remember why I had gone there, but it didn't happen, so I went back into the...

    I often tell myself I take garbage bags to the

    garbage can outside when I leave for work or shopping. How many times have I discovered that I forgot to bring them with me when I reached to the first floor of my apartment. Often I have to make it a distinct mission to take the garbage bags to outside and come back to my room...

    I can have everything I need on my mind,

    and as soon as I walk in the room I just go blank, then when I walk out the room I remember.

    I have terrible short term memory,

    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.

    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.

    I'm very forgetful, up to a point where my mom gets frustrated with me. Walking into a room and forgetting why I was there is only scratching the surface of my stupidity 😝

    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.
