    I'm so forgetful, I wonder

    if something is wrong with me. Then I remember it's probably the weed.

    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...

    This happens to me before I ever

    even leave the room. I literally just get off of my bed and I completely forget what I got up for.

    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...

    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.

    Lol

    I just walked in and got distracted by something and then I was like "...why am I in the basement?" Then I went upstairs and my mom gave me this look and then I was like "...oh yeah! Onions!" Then I went back downstairs and got the onions. The salad was good. The end! :-D

    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 actually happens right now.

    I went into the kitchen and just stood there, wondering why I had even bothered getting up. I want hungry, no one was there, and the floor was freezing. So why did I go into the kitchen!!?

    but this happens to me more often than I'm comfortable with. Sometimes when I'm cooking, I'll open the fridge and immediately forget why. I'll go to Target, spend $200, and not come home with the ONE THING I needed in the first place. Once in a while, I'll even forget where I'm...
