I am a forgetful sort. Sometimes the brain-fart is mindboggling (like the time I briefly forgot how to spell the word “goes”), and sometimes it’s drastic (like the time I forgot I had a whole ten-page paper that was due in about three hours). But then there are things, mostly little things, that I forget to do just about every single time I try to do them.
I often forget to take my BC pill. I’m not talking completely–to date I haven’t skipped one altogether–I just go into the bathroom intending to take it, do something else, then come out again…without having taken the pill :smack:. Most of the time when this happens I just sigh, turn around and head back to the bathroom, but the regularity at which this happens is pretty frustrating.
I also forget that the lights in my bathroom are dimmable. My dad fixed them up this way when replacing the lighting, and I thought “oh, how neat! Now when I have to get up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, I don’t have to blind myself!” Well…I still do. I’ll stumble to the bathroom, flip on the light, shield my eyes, do my business, stumble back, grumbling the whole way about being blinded by the light…and then I’ll think “wait a minute, I don’t have to do that!” I’m getting better about this one (that is, I’ll remember a few seconds after I get into the bathroom as opposed to when I’m back in bed), but it’s still irritating.
So, anyone else do this? Or am I just weird?
