    Lot More Lately

    These days I have become a total airhead! I forget everything including how to cook and how not to run into things. OMG I feel like I'm 103 years old and aging fast!

    Absent Minded

    It is often a taboo to be absent minded. Tell me if you gave socrates or plato a letter to post at a particular point of time or asked them them to remember certain digits. They couldn't ! Their mind was full of ideas and busy with possible policies of construction of society. It...

    I'm absent minded a lot.

    I forget things all the time. I think I would forget my head if it wasn't attached. I keep having to go back for things or go without them. It's very annoying because my time is limited, and I lose a lot of time and money because of my forgetfulness.

    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!

    Somewhat?...heh-heh.

    I'm probably the most forgetful 20-something you'll ever meet. I'm the girl whose looking for the ink pen that she just stuck behind her ear, or the keys that've been in her pocket the whole time she was looking. It isn't even losing things, because in my own space...as cluttered...

    Terrible memory which is getting worse,

    so lost in thought sometimes...I'm a wreck. A councillor said I am absent minded once and I took it as an insult. Oh well. It's true

    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...

    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...
