How many times has this happened to you? First of all, let me set the stage. You have the radio on while you’re in bed making passionate love to your man, woman, or BOTH. You hear a song that you haven’t heard in a longtime and all of a sudden, without even thinking about it, you start HUMMING.
Jimmy Crack Corn and I don’t care
Your partner/partners carry on while YOU’RE humming until THEY start to hum. NOW, the passionate lovemaking turns into a HOOTENANNY.
Why do our brains DO this? The ANSWER of course is simple. They are just showing off. Yup, that’s right, your brain wants you to know that IT is the superior force, NOT your body. Damn show off brain.
Here’s another one. You are a creature of habit right, most of us are, and you ALWAYS put your keys in the same place when you come into the house. SURE, you might have been just a TAD bit WASTED when you came home from the bar last night, but STILL, you ALWAYS put your keys in the same place. Well…Guess what, you go to run an errand the next day and NO KEYS!!! WTF???
How Dry I Am
You guessed it, the old brain is playin’ tricks on you again. No matter HOW hard you try and how many times you searched in the STANDARD place, they are NOT there.
Finally, you sit down while crying from frustration, you come to a conclusion. Someone STOLE them. You actually START to BELIEVE in GREMLINS. Maybe THEY took them. Again though, this is just the handy work of the old brain, trying to pawn the responsibility off on some else and NOT your DRUNK self. I mean it just COULDN’T have been been YOUR fault.
Last but not least is the famous “What’s My Name” game. OK…I must admit, I have a pretty good memory BUT, occasionally, I forget peoples names. It is Sooo embarrassing. Has the name loss game ever happened to you? Usually, when this happens, you just stand there with your hand shaking theirs and just SMILE. It appears that if we just SMILE long enough, and with a wide toothy eyed grin we will be rewarded by remembering the person’s name. BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Even Will Rogers, famous 20th. Century humorist made light of memory loss when he met the President of the United States. He held out his hand to greet the President and quipped, “I’m sorry, I didn’t catch the name.” Just goes to show ya that the Brain is the ultimate SMART ASS and as I said above… It’s all in your head.
