Have you had days or moments when you run on auto-pilot and when you realise what you were doing, you are:
a. doing it all completely wrong
b. being a doof head
c. a complete idiot
d. All of the above
Of course, you have! And you have because no one is perfect. Also, I refuse to believe that I am the only moron in the world who has done the following without putting the brain into gear for several days (or moments) in a row…
Like the one time when I had squeezed my toothpaste onto my toothbrush and upon brushing my teeth, I thought that it doesn’t taste as minty as it usually would be. Still I continued and nothing clicked. Half-way through the motion, I then realised the problem: I had used my facial cleanser instead.
Like the one time when I shampooed my hair and wondering why there was no lather or bubbles at.all. Still I continued adding the shampoo and after my shower, realised that I had used body lotion instead. Smart.
Like the other day when I went to the office without my wallet. The first time it had happened in years!
And on the same day that I did not have my wallet, we went to a drive-through as I wanted to get breakfast. It was only upon payment that I realised I did not have my wallet with me and Silver Bullet had to pick up the tab. As soon as he paid, neither of us paid attention. Silver Bullet drove off past the pick-up window and I had not even noticed. I only realised we forgot to pick up my breakfast 15 minutes later.
Like just a few days ago when I did not even noticed that I was wearing my beach sandals to go to the office on the way to the car. I only realised my folly when I went back home to retrieve my mobile phone which I had forgotten to take with me.
Like the other day when I had turned on the oven to heat up my breakfast to bring to the office and then completely forgot about it. Luckily for me, my nanny chased after me and brought it down for me before we drove off.
Like the time when I walked into a 7-11 with a purpose, but for the life of me could not figure out what I wanted to get when I got there. I promptly left, cussing at myself.
Like the time I was looking all over for my glasses and only realised that I had it on my head all along! Duh.
That pretty much summed up my recent follies as I went about on auto-pilot. It was a week of DUH! Like my daughter would have quipped, “Mama, I think your brain is not working very well!”
And you know what, I think she is right about that. I have been more than just a little ditzy. I suck! Still, they make for good stories. And sometimes, that’s just how I gotta roll! After all, you have gotta be able to laugh at yourself, no?
What about you? Got some ditzy and “brain-not-working-well” stories to share? Leave your comments of your ditzy days so I don’t feel all alone!
