I heard some happy news for me on the radio a few weeks ago. The news went something like this:
If you are finding your car keys in the refrigerator, don't worry. You are not crazy; part of your brain may be taking a nap while the rest of you is awake.
Mystery solved: My brain is a cat-napper. (And I was getting worried--sheesh.)
This explains why when I went to work out this week, I drove in the opposite dircection of the gym, and why I can't remember my children's names and why I once drove the gymnastics carpool and arrived at gymnastics with nobody in the car.
I suspect this is also the reason I keep forgetting to shave my legs, switch the laundry, make dinner, and eat something besides junk.
My friend Camille says my mind is a steel-trap, that's because she is funny and thinks I am funny because I always forget to write things down. But now I know I'm not forgetting, HELLO that part of my brain is just napping. Shhhhh. So don't be alarmed when I forget your name after 15 years or fail to get your kids where they're supposed to be on time. Just be happy that some part of me is getting a nap.
