Photo of the day – What did I come in here for?

Have you ever walked into a room, and didn’t recall why you went into the room in the first place? I think we all have!

One of the things I’ve noticed now that I’m a dad (and a heavily sleep deprived one at that), is that I wander into the kitchen all the time, and don’t know the exact reason I was in there. Was it to start cleaning up? Did my wife ask me to come in here to grab something for her? Did I have something in my hands that needed to be dropped there? Was there a cold beer in the fridge? Did we eat all the ice cream? The answer to all those questions is probably yes. Except the beer, sadly.

What the hell did I come in here to do anyway?

And, what was the purpose of this post?

  1. I do that all the time! I recently had to write a paper on such shenanigans….they are technically called memory slips.

    For example: The other morning I was late to work because I had to find the coffee I some how misplaced- it was in the fridge….

    1. Awesome. Now I know what they’re called! That has to be one of the worst mind slips. Forgetting where you put your coffee is horrible!

  2. hahahaha! I do that too! Sometimes I just stand and stare blankly at a spot in the room hoping that it will magically reveal to me the answer. It doesn’t work most times and I end up looking a little uhmm..disturbed.
