I believe that is called a brain fart. I have my share of them.

I have been known to go into the basement to get something.Then when I get down there,I have forgotten what I went down there for.

Ha ha. I think we all can relate to that situation. I already went into the next room or the garage and forgot what I wanted.

Good thing ,when I get up in the middle of the night to take a pee--I don't forget what I got up for.

Well the good thing about getting forgetful is all the new friends I meet every day!
Which is nice.

that's really not too much to worry about....just short term memory outages, probably too much insulin in your bloodstream.

My Daughter was helping me look for my phone one morning, so she called my #.

It rang from inside the fridge.... blush

Or walk into your neighbors unlocked house thinking it was yours (wasn’t me). The booze probably didn’t help the memory.

I was getting ready to go to the store last week... had my coat on, my hat and gloves on and started out... no car keyes. I checked the pockets on the coat I was wearing... twice. Then I checked all of the other coats on the rack. Then I looked at random place that I normally put them or other things. So I was just about to give up and started to take my coat off when I found the crazy things. They were in my left hand. I never have my leyes in m left hand... but there they were... Duh! Yep old age!!!!

Not me, but I once woke up to the sound of my wife searching all over her side of the bed, using her smartphone for a flashlight. Looking under the bed, behind the nightstand, under the books etc, under the covers... I rolled over and asked what she was doing. "Looking for my phone," she replied. Again... using her phone for a flashlight.

I'm not sure she was completely awake. I suspect she woke up thinking/dreaming she lost her phone and started searching before the wheels were all turning.
I've had my share of mental blips, but they're less funny.

I shot a coyote with my Ruger single six. I laid It on the hood of the truck right up next to the windshield.Once I got the set made I went looking for the gun. Me and my buddy looked for over 20 min. It blended In with the black cowling along the edge of the windshield.
I was getting breakfast when I poured sunny D over my cheerios. LOL Actually It was pretty good.
