Have You Seen My Brain?

I don't know where it is or what's wrong with it, but my brain is definitely not in residence with any permanency lately.

Evidenced by the fact that . . .
  • I continually go to the trouble of opening the cabinet, taking out the hair dryer, plugging it in and turning it on before remembering that my hair is so very short that it is dry before I finish toweling off the rest of me and a hair dryer is totally unnecessary.
  • I ask Scott no less than three times each evening what he would like to drink with dinner.  (And sometimes he still gets served the wrong beverage!)
  • I spent 10 minutes (in blistering hot 'heat advisory' weather) searching the back yard for the last two dogs to come inside, when I had already let them in 20 minutes before.
I won't bore you with any more but, trust me, there's LOTS more examples.

I have a few theories....

Maybe it takes off for a short little vacation every now and then.  I'd get away from me for a while if I could.

Maybe my brain's sleep schedule is messed up and it's up and active when I'm sleeping.... hence the odd dreams.  And taking catnaps when I'm awake.

Or it could be getting ahead of me... thinking about the next task before I've finished the one I'm working on.  I'm a very impatient person.  Could be my brain is just a bit more impatient.

Perhaps it's not getting enough ice cream.  That can throw me into a tailspin. 

Since this last theory is the only one I have any control over I think I will work on this one.  Now.

Do you think you are suffering from brain freeze from too much ice cream?

Kathleen said...

NO!! No brain freeze. And there is no such thing as 'too much ice cream'! What is wrong with you???
