Brain Farts

Walking down the Stairs, that take you from your 2nd Story to your 1st Story in your home. The stairs you go up and down 341 times a day. You are going down, hands full of ..anything, anything at all and your almost to the bottom, doing your "feet go down the stairs routine"...and Suddenly.

Your feet and brain don't communicate any longer, how many more stairs to go? Oh Crap you hope your feet can figure this out. And if they don't...face plant to the bottom. Yep. I've done it. I thought I was done, 1 more stair to go- but no-- They were 3 to go- and Down I went. 

BRAIN FART.



Bowling. Ball in hand, you got your "routine" Step with the right foot, then the left, right, left lunge and bowl. 
My turn, here we go. Standing with ball in hand about to get my Strike ON. And it happens. Which foot do I start with? I took too many steps up. I didn't lunge with my right leg.

BRAIN FART.



Opening the Fridge and putting in the box of cereal. 

BRAIN FART.



Starting a load of laundry and not putting clothes in the washer. Then coming back into the garage 6 hours later to water just chilling in your washer, patiently waiting.

BRAIN FART.






brain fart (may be jocularly derived from "brain infarction")[1] is slang for a special kind of abnormal brain activity which results inhuman error while performing a repetitive task

{Thank you Wikipedia for the definition}



So.... this is the only time I will allow "fart talk" at the Table... 
Bring it Ladies- I know you got some!

  1. Guilty of all you included although, I have been know to put the milk in the pantry so often that it is no longer a brain fart but brain diarrhea! May need to just go with instant powdered milk...that I will just put in the silverware drawer...

  2. I tend to be driving to one place and end up at another. (Going to the post office and end up at the grocery store...or driving to swim lessons and end up at preschool....or driving to the gym and end up at Dairy Queen...) :)

  4. I tend to walk into the room and then not remember why I went into it! Also, the classic can't find my car keys while I'm at the store and then realizing that I have been holding them the whole time. :-)

  8. OMG I've done the bowling thing a million times especially when it's been a while between trips to the lane. And my favorite is the phone in the fridge and yes, I've put the milk in the cupboard too :) I personally like to think it's just because as a Mom I'm am ALWAYS multitasking and the rest of the family is having fun! That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    Thanks for the laugh ladies :)

  10. Brain farting is not the exception but rather the rule for me! So often I start something and "the train leaves the station" before I finish and I have no idea what I was doing or where I was going!

  11. Oh I love you! I would like to say this never happens to me but it's pretty much an everyday occurrence. Yesterday I emptied the vacuum canister into the garbage outside, came back in and proceeded to vacuum the living room....yeah, I'm a genius!
