On occasion at work I sit at a co-worker's desk, I quite often start "typing" something and become confused when nothing shows on the screen......until I realize I have been using the calculator as a keyboard doh!

Tonight I was feeding the dogs and needed a can of food. I chanted "I need a can of dog food" out loud from the kitchen to the store room, wouldn't even look at the fridge and VOILA! I came out with the can on the first try!

Maybe you CAN teach and old dog feeder new tricks!

Often in the night DH will let the dog out and turn off the TV to let me sleep. I will wake up, turn it back on and go back to sleep!
LP, I am forever falling asleep with the TV on in the recliner

Actually this is an Albert Einstein quote :) love, and agree with it, however it is misinformation to say that it is the "definition" :)

Andy, you made me think of what I do when I move to a new house. When it is time to put the dishes in the cupboards for the first time, if the layout of the kitchen is very different from what I am used to, I stand there and think, "I need a plate," and I reach out quickly. Wherever I reach out to without really thinking about it usually turns out to be the best place.
I believe that is called "central vac" and I would LOVE something like that!!

I'm going to be moving in september and will have to remember that trick. I'm renting a room in a house right now so I didn't decide where things go, and every single time I open up the wrong drawer looking for silverware. EVERY TIME!

Another thing I do is, when someone asks what the date is, I often look at my watch. I have NEVER had a watch with a calendar!

A very irritating thing I sometimes do is, when I'm looking for something in the refrigerator or cupboard, I will pick something up to look behind it, and then I realize that the thing in my hand is what I was looking for!
It sounds like they should have put the switch there when the house was built! Clearly that is where it belongs! ;).

Maybe someone needs to buy you a new watch with the date on it!

And last, but not least, you are so smart to already pick up something in the fridge before even see it! Sounds like ESP!

I guess you are all set!!!

Now could you help the rest of us out? :D

So...I have a pantry in the kitchen as well as one in the basement. I am always going to the basement and staring at the shelves looking for something that is upstairs in the kitchen pantry!

I have a silver dippiing cup for a punch bowl. No punch bowl though. I pour my pills it it. As soon as I empty it, I immediately put in the next dose. That doesn't mean I will remember to take them on time.
