Talking "Brain Farts"

A few days ago I was at a stoplight that was out - road crews had placed stop signs at the intersection.

There was a lady who stopped before me & was still there after I left (ok- so I checked the rearview mirror several times) I think she was waiting for the lights to change. I lost it laughing because I've done the same thing before.

anyone else care to share?

Re: "Brain Farts"

I was just coming in to post something similar!

We have a walled patio off our family room with a built-in planter and a lovely Japanese maple tree. A bunny has decided to make a nest under the tree this year. My DH and I have been watching it make this nest for at least a week, and today, we saw the bunny digging pretty deep. I was very impressed!

DH was too. He turned to me and in all seriousness said, "Do you think she laid her eggs, yet?"

At first I thought - so?, what's wrong with that? Then I GOT it. Duh. That in of itself qualifies me to join in this thread!

That's funny! I often think faster than I talk and say things like I need to put car in the gas. I use "blond moment" as my excuse, though my hair is getting darker, so I don't know how much longer that'll fly.

Re: "Brain Farts"

This happened 3 years ago, but I was very embarrassed.


I has having one of those days and needed/wanted to see DS's teacher. I couldn't find her in her classroom and I looked into another class to ask the woman sitting there if she'd seen Ms. ________. She was Ms. ________. (though- in my defense she had her hair done differently)

Re: "Brain Farts"

I'm having one of those days - thing is...this has been going on for a few weeks

-I've locked my keys in the car (2nd time in my life - DH came to my rescue & was sweet about it)

-I couldn't get my cell phone to work, even after I charged it. turns out I needed to turn it back on

-I'm forgetting to check pocketts when doing laundry & have had things like tissues & ink pens go thru the wash

and so on.....

Re: "Brain Farts"

I'm been a little under the weather, but that's it.

Re: "Brain Farts"

oh yea....

I also took DS to his game Friday night at the wrong time (I looked at the time for this Friday ) Luckily the wrong time was the early time - so we still made his game, which was late (and they won )

Re: "Brain Farts"

ooops - did another one (but DS joined me on this one )


I was on a one-way street that "T"ed - and turned left......then realized, as I was driving down the road, that I was no longer on a one-way, but was driving on the wrong side of the road - DS gave me a hard time about it until I asked "Why didn't you say something?" - his reply - I didn't realize either
