Those Darn Doors

Sunday, March 24, 2013

Are you, like me, one of those folks who walk into a room and don't remember what you went in there for in the first place? Have you tried focusing and repeating to yourself beforehand what you need only to find something else to do once you're in there?


There's hope for us. Phychologists at University of Notre Dame have a name for this annoyance. "Event Boundary". The mind separates one set of thoughts from another. It gives the mind a blank page when you enter the room.

    Our poor kids when we send them to get something and they come back emptyhanded. Let alone a list!

    thanks...there can be no one that has not experienced that.

then wonder what the heck I came to that room for!

    The thing that bugs me most is when I can't find the salt and pepper and realize I stuck them in the frig. Hasn't happened for years, but when it did, oh boy! More recently I was looking for the phone for something I had to take care of and I was talking on it. That rates an oh, bother! emoticon
