Losing Your Stuff As Well As Your Mind:

You ever have a day where everything you thought was supposed to be somewhere isn’t?You carefully took the time to strategically place something in a certain spot that only you can remember and one of two things happens:  

  1. You forget the “secret” location so not even you can find it.
  2. You only think that you left the item there. Ha, ha! YOU FOOL!

Now the latter is the most dangerous of all.  Because those keys that you cleverly hid in the cookie jar on the shelf never really happened.  You see, you only thought to leave the keys there.  You’re mind is playing tricks of total recall on you.  In truth, the keys are in your jacket pocket. You forgot that you talked yourself out of leaving the keys in the cookie jar because you’d never find them there. Don’t that beat all?  Then there are other instances like losing papers that you thought you just had.  You think: But I just had this in my hands. Then you think: Where’d it go? Don’t you hate that?  Doesn’t it ruin your flow?  I mean, one minute you had that small stack of copies that you ran on the copier when all of a sudden–BAM!  You discover that you don’t have them.  Like Nancy Drew you go on a caper because that’s what detectives do.  You look everywhere and are about to go mad with rage when all of a sudden, THERE THEY ARE!  It’s as though the pile never left.   So you start rummaging through the scenarios. How could you have overlooked it before?  Did someone else drop it off?   Was it there all along?  Am I going crazy? 

The answer is yes.  Yes you are.
