Onset of Old Age?


Could Old Age be catching up with me? Picked up the Bathroom Cleaner and sprayed the toilet bowl and only realised my mistake when I picked up the Toilet Duck to spread all over the bath tub. Thank God I came to my senses on time. Any one care to share their absent minded experiences?!?!?

  4. Deeply engrossed in telephone discussion the night of my graduation party, I once almost emptied washing up powder into the lower drawer of the kitchen fridge,

    Think i must have had quite a bit to drink and was not paying attention - felt it was the soap drawer of the washing machine until I looked and quickly stepped back - however by the time I tried to halt - it was all over the kitchen floor. Total mess.

  5. it is called Temporary Amnesia. I once thot my phone was my mouse. I kept on clicking whatever I thot was clicking only to be confused coz nothing happened on my computer screen. Twas then I remembered twas my phone I was holding, not the mouse - that one is called 'over-computing'.

  7. last december I went shopping at the Palms,lekki.only when I stepped out of the car did I realise that I was wearing my bathroom slippers,WHAT?!?!I forgot to put on my shoes .I have never gone there without bumping into 2 or 3 people I know and this time was no exception even though I prayyyyyed hard not to meet anyone.
    I started limping just in case anyone asked,I planned to say I sprained my ankle and couldn't wear proper shoes.

  8. lol@tokunboh
    This reminds me of a joke played on me at work, when someone hid my mouse and replaced it with an old cordless type. I kept trying until I actually gave it a look. You should have seen the expression on my face.

  9. My worst one was a long time ago, during my SSCE exams. Chemistry practical. I had a test tube in one hand, and a pen in the other. After mixing all the chemicals, and successfully finishing the experiment, I decided to write my results down. I searched everywhere for my pen. Eventually, I found it in the test tube holder. guess where my pen was?

    Right on top of my exam booklet........

  10. Mrs Someburry o! LOL! I once dressed up for work and it was not until I walked out the door that I realised that I was barefeet.

    I can write you a book on my many escapades with absent mindedness.

  11. Guess the most recent experience of mine that's in the same class would be the day I went to grab a bite at an eatery, picked up the food, left my car keys on the table and tried to get into my car only to relaize my keys were no were to be founnd .. I actually paid some chaps to break into the car only to relazise the key wasn't there -- The keys -- they were on the counter - if I had only walked back in and asked, I 'd have saved myself all the hassle -- Guess mine was hunger induced (It was a Sunday aftertoon and I'd missed dinner the ngiht b4 and breakfast that day!!!)

  13. Usually it happens when ur mind is on someother things. U could be looking at something and not see it. I almost drank kerosene one day thinking it was water.

  14. How about the time I squeezed liquid handwash unto my toothbrush and it wasn't until I got close to my mouth that I realized that my toothpaste smelled kinda fruity. It happens to the best of us, you are not alone.

  15. I have laughed so hard at everyone's tory. I was so engrossed in a conversation once that I did not realise I was pouring salt into my tea instead of sugar. I only found out when I had a sip that my tea was salty. I did not even realise it then. I thot it was the new tea taste (hey but that was funny cos I had the same tea the previous day and it tasted fine). I inquiringly look at my cup for an answer and then I realised I poured salt instead of sugar. What was I thinking?
