Well...I think I reached my dumbest moment ever Vic!    

I was at a second hand store looking at curtains for my room I was repainting.  I couldn't make up my mind, so I went out to my car to get a quart sized can of it to match up.   I picked which curtains I liked best, started to head back to put the other set back and suddenly realized I left my paint can in the Home Depot bag on the counter up front.....this is where it gets good...

I turned around immediately (which was nano seconds) headed back to counter and my plastic bag and paint can was gone!   The gal asked what was wrong, I told her.  She runs out in parking lot to check to see if someone picked it up.  Another clerk starts checking around and another starts to go back to see if someone turned it in.   Meanwhile I'm clucking like a mad hen saying "who would steal a small can of paint", "that just pisses me off", "what would someone do with a quart of special paint", "I just bought that: etc.   Then I tell the clerk "well, I will just pay for this curtain".  She looks at me and says "does it look like that paint can hanging off your arm?"   OMG!  I forgot I had looped the bag handles over my arm while carrying my purse and curtains.  I laid my head on the counter and started laughing.  The clerk says "I think you are ready to go home".  LOL!   Wowsa!

Have them constantly myself. Looking for the glasses on my head. Wearing eye glasses w/Sunglasses still on my head.Forgetting the most basic phone numbers. Proofing letters over and over and still missing stuff, etc. Yup, I'm there at least once or twice a day. I guess we need some brain food but wait...I've forgotten what it is,,,,

Umm . . . if that includes mis-matched socks, then yes.  As a matter of fact I have done it a few times - just in the last month.  None was as bad though as just this last Christmas when we traveled to my sister's and everyone sat down to do open presents - there I was with one snowman sock and one present sock (when my 4 yr. old niece pointed it out to everyone - all 20 of them).  Ofcorse I told them I did it on purpose (got a few eye rolls, but hey, who cares).  And yes, I was clean then (by a month).

Guess I should start opening the blinds before I pick out my socks :))

At least you got your colors matched Vic - both brown, right?

Oh hell ya! We were just out grocery shopping this evening. I grabbed an item and i put it in this guys shopping cart instead of ours. And he was standing there with his hands on the push bar of his cart! I just didn't look at what I was doing. He said "like, thats my cart you just put that in". Duuuude! Sorry...

S--t like that happens all the time. Don't know if i fried my brain up when using or I'm just normally old and confused.

LOL,
Thanks guys for bringing back to life the social forum.  This is a great place to hang out and relieve some tensions and have a few laughs.  We all spend a lot of time on here trying to do as much as we possibly can to read every post and give the best information, support, and encouragement that we can possibly give.  Don't get me wrong, I don't consider it work.  I much like all of you guys don't do it for pay.  We don't do it for rewards, for stars, for notoriety, or any other selfish reason.
It is ironic that you brought this topic up today....lol  I do have a lot of days like that.  I do wake up groggy some days and disoriented but most of that can be contributed to my sleep meds.  However I have mornings that I wake up with no after effects of the medicine and it well...I will give you an example of what happened two days ago and then I wil tell you about why it was ironid that you brought this up today.
I woke up and I started my routine.  Same as usual I took a shower, took my meds, drank some coffee, and smoked a few cigs.  I was sitting in my room on the floor in front of the heater which I forgot to turn on the night before.  I had the ashtray in front of me and my back to the heater.  The ashtray was full from the day before because I also forgot to empty it the night before.  I smoked a couple cigs, got up and started cleaning up the room.  I walked around picking up the few things that were laying on the floor...except the ashytray.  I made my bed and as I started to sit down at the computer I stepped on the ashtray (which as I said was amost over-full).  I was only wearing mys socks and sure enough...ashes all over my foot, cig butts all over the floor and a very bewildered and aggravating state of mind as I looked down at my feet and wondered why I didn't notice a large bright ashtray in the middle of the floor.  Anyway, I calmly walked into the kitchen and grabbed the broom and dustpan.  I had calmed down a little by the time I got back to my room so I leaned down and scooped up the mess then changed my socks.  I went into the kitchen to dump the butts and ashes in the trashcan.  This is where it starts getting bad.  We have one of those trashcans where you step on the pedal and the lid  opens.  I started to step on the pedal and I was so used to it opening right up I tipped the dust pan into the trash.  The only thing was I didn't (for some reason) realize that I had missed the pedal so the lid didn't open...WTF lol
At this point I was pretty um...well, we will say I was going into Hulk mode.  Yet again I calmed myself down and whipped all the ashes off of the top of the trashcan, took off my socks that were again covered in ashes and swept it all up again.  This time the diposal process went according to plan (because I thought about every step of it).  "Step on the pedal."  "Wait for the lid to open."  "Dump in the ashes and butts."  "Release pedal."  The broom is stored in the space between the oven and the couter.  I through it into its place and the next step was to walk back to the room and finish my routine.  Unfortunately that is not what happened.  I through the broom so hard that the handle bounced back and hit me in the head.  I will not discuss the words that I said but I will tell you that that broom is no longer with us  lol
Back to the irony.  I called a friend this morning and we talkked for a while.  At a certain point in the conversation (and keep in mind this guy can get on almost as big a rants as me) I caught an opporunity to sneak in a few words, I then paused for him to talk.  About ten minutes later (give or take) I heard him say "Are you there?"  "Are you ok?"  I said "what, why, I was just pausing to wait for you to say something."  Apparently he had been talking for a while and had paused for a minute for me to reply, checking his phone a couple of times to see if we were still connected.  I have no idea where I went to for those ten minutes but I have no idea what he said and forgot what we were even talking about.  WOW, I don't know what happened there.  Perhaps I was abducted by aliens and brought back....don't know.  It didn't worry me, all I could do was laugh about it but when we hung up I really questioned what could have happened.

Got in the car one morning to go to work, still had my slippers on!   I was looking for a key the other day...tore my purse apart and couldn't find it.  Went back and decided for one more look.  It was hidden underneath my lipstick!   Was wearing my sunglasses indoor the other day (they are bifocal) to read something instead of my regular reading glasses!!   Derrrrrr!!!    And I too am always missing things when I proof at work.  I might have to print something several times before I catch all the typo's.  I do silly stuff like walk into a room, forget why I was there, turn around, then remember what I was going to do.  Forget names, numbers, words, where I was driving too!  LOL...wait...I did all these things before...ha ha ha ha!   Oh, did I mention I'm a klutz now more than ever too??

My wife and I were in the grocery store one evening and she was looking for a particular item, as usual I was trying to hurry her along. I put my arm around her waist and started directing her down the isle, said something like  "come on sweet stuff" and gave her a light pat on her backside But I had grabbed the wrong lady! My wife was still knelt down looking for cream of tarter or something.
She and the other couple just about laughed me out of the store!
They were good natured about it all, but it was emarassing!

His and started walking again chatting about all the cool stuff.  When I stopped for a second I looked up and said Hey, your not my hisband!  The man responded, No but its been fun walking with you.  He started laughing and I turned to look baci and find my ex laughing and pointing at me.  So embarrassing!

Ok Vicki, Since you posted this thread I've been debating how much and what brain fade moment I was willing to disclose on account it may further incriminate my already fragile reputation (hah). Sooooo, I decided settled on one that happened yesterday and one that relates to medhelp. Ok yesterday I was rushing like a nut , doing 10 things at once. I pulled out into traffic, crossed a median about to proceed into the hwy . I meant to punch my window washer button on my steering wheel but pushed on the right side of it instead of the left. Yup, instead of water squirting out I put my car into PARK instead of drive and it came to a screeching halt and stopped me smack in the flow of the oncoming traffic. It took me a few seconds (seemed like 10 min) to figured out what I did. I put it back in drive and got dirty looks from all that had to brake and keep from hitting me ughhhh. Ok, now for my second reveal. 2 years ago while in the mountains of NC I decided I'd go to an alanon meeting. I had never been and although I needed to go to AA or NA, I wanted to get my feet wet in alanon. I drove to a neighboring town cause I read that they had meetings in the local moose lodge on Tue. nights. I walked in and there were 7 people in the room sitting around the table. I was sweating bullets and had such inner jitters you wouldn't believe. I signed in sat down and 10 minutes into the meeting after they handed out pamphlets (recepies), I realized I was in a weight watchers meeting instead. I still don't know what the he-- I read that had me thinking it was an alanon meeting but I apparently had the wrong night. I nearly stroked out with a flushed face  full of embarrassment. I had to announce I was in the wrong place and exit. true story. Only for you Vic!!!!!!! Man, I'm cringing just thinking back......
