You Know You’re Absent Minded When…

By countrygirl Uncategorized 2 Comments on You Know You’re Absent Minded When…

… you have nightmares about leaving water running.

… you accidentally bring a 5-gallon bucket to the house after milking instead of the little wash bucket.

… right in the middle of singing “Away In A Manger” for the millionth time you forget the words.

… someone asks if you remembered to milk, you automatically panic.

… you forget you are in a conversation with someone mid-sentence. (Your own sentence.)

… you can stare straight into someone’s eyes and appear to listen intently without hearing a word.

… you forget why you have something in your hand.

… you forget what year it is (and your only nineteen).    

I regularly do all of the above. For more stories visit Country Cowgirl.

    I used to hate that feeling if being halfway to a job only to think ‘did I leave the stove on?’ or ‘did I lock the backdoor?’ only to drive all the way home and it’s all okay!

    My brother and I selectively listen to my mother when she rings so we often ring each other to piece the conversations together. Mum often rings our wives and says ‘it’s clear the boys don’t listen so I’ll chat to you instead!’

    I’m terrible for forgetting what I’m doing in the middle of doing it. If something else catches my attention for a moment–it’s gone. Then I have to stop and remember what I was doing.

    Needless to say, my work area is covered in sticky notes and reminders.
