    Don't Confuse "Absent-minded" With "Forgetful"

    The last thing I am is forgetful! In fact, I have a better memory than nearly everyone I've ever met. I am however, very absent-minded in a literal sense. I "zone-out" constantly; that "million miles away" experience. I am aware of things happening around...

    I swear I'm not always

    so absentminded. I have my days like anybody else! I do have an awful tendency of looking down at whatever I may be holding...just to be painfully reminded that there was a closed door, wall, or random object in my path. Thank God I haven't tripped over my sister yet!

    Almost Got In Car Accident

    I live up in my head.  It's fun sometimes, but scary too.   Too often, I climb up in my head at inopportune times.  I.e. like when I'm driving a car.  Tonight I almost got in an accident at a red light.  Of course, I had stopped at the red light, been...

    Somewhat?...heh-heh.
