I'm absented minded, quite muchly so, it never ceases to amaze me the things I haven't realised.

The other day I quietly said to myself. "Why's it so cold in my house" and went to turn up the heating only to realise it was cold because I was naked.
Last night I was walking around the house wondering where all the red ink on my shirt was coming from, only to realise I was bleeding quite a lot from my hand.
I all too often have placed sugar on my chips instead of salt.,
The list goes on!

I swear, I am utterly unaware of my surroundings 90% of the time, I bump into things often, and other people as well as I ponder and think. Someone once asked me if it annoyed me. God no! I think it makes life ever so much more interesting personally. And why not?

So what foolishly absent minded things have you guys commited?

Too many to count.

"Where's my scrunchie? Guess I'll have to use a different hair tie then... oh well."

Ten minutes later: "Oh... it's on my wrist."

"Crap, where are my glasses?" On my face...

I trip over my own two feet, the slightest thing in my way, up the stairs, and down the stairs. Most of the time, my arms and legs have bruises all over. Give me something hot, and I'll burn myself. Something breakable? I'll drop it. I don't trust myself during labs in science class. I am the ultimate klutz, which pairs nicely with being absent-minded. Grabbing a plate right after it's been in the microwave and then dropping it because it's hot? Must be me.

And yes, sometimes it's fun. biggrin.gif

Just yesterday I closed a car door on my stomach. I must say that really hurt. (I either thought the door was 2 feet shorter than it actually was, or I thought I was thinner than I actually am.)

I too often run into things, trip on air, and forget things.

One day a co-worker pinched my hands between a door and a table we were carrying through it and I didn't realize I was bleeding until I looked down and noticed that my entire hand was red. I dripped halfway through the store before I knew I was bleeding, and let me tell you cleaning that up off of hardwood floors, is hard.

The one that scares me the most is when I am at school and don't know how I got there. I've had this happen mulitple times and considering the fact that I have to drive an hour to get to school, that is really frightening. I guess it's good to know that I can drive in my sleep though.

I know there are many more, but I can't think of them right now.

There's a rather large hanging clock on the wall immediately perpendicular to my bedroom. I often stumble out of there and hit it. Damn near broke my foot when it fell on me once.

There are probably others, but I'm not delving right now.

It's become a running joke in my family that whenever I sit down for tea and the food has been cooked, my parents will have to explain to me "Now Louise, the food has just come out of the oven so what will it be?"
Of course it's too late and I am already gulping down the nearest glass of water in hope of saving some of my taste buds.

Past that my best friend walked into a door frame this morning and couldn't work out why it hurt.

At a football game:

Dad: We're just now in the third quarter.
Me: How many quarters are there?

Like Gothictheysay, I am constantly losing my glasses (and scrunchie) only to find out that I'm wearing them.
It's the same thing with my shoes.
"We're leaving in ten minutes? Okay, just let me grab my shoes... Wait... Where are my shoes?"
Ten minutes later, I'll look down at my feet:
"Hey, how'd those get there?"

The only thing I can think of right now is 'accidentally' getting gravy on our 9 foot tall ceilings....

My family still wont let me live that down.... though we just recently painted our ceiling so they dont point out the stains to people anymore....

I did that talking about a basketball match that happened at school today.

My friend Matt: I went off for a quarter

I am famously oblivious. I left the cardboard bit underneath some frozen pizza once, then put it in the oven....that went well. I also mananged to put an x-acto all the way through my thumb and not notice it was halfway severed until I hit bone and looked down. Eheh.

Better proof still, Mike can sneak up behind me. I won't notice this until he is several seconds into squeezing my ass. ph34r.gif

Leaving bags behind is one of my old favourites. The route back from one of my old jobs used to go past a pub I quite liked and, as a result, I usually nipped in there for a quick pint to break up the journey. Unfortunately, due to my intense loathing of shopping, I'm quite unused to having anything I need to pick up and take with me when leaving. Rather predictably this meant that I often (as in several times a month) had to go there the next day to get things back.

It just goes to show that absent mindedness can have enjoyable results. If you aren't a liver or kidney of course.

One of my friends automaically throws out an arm and stops me whenever we walk up to a raod because I never pay attention. He saves my life about three times a day.

We call the crossing of the road to the school double deckers on the other side the suicide dash for a good reason. The traffic lights and the crosisng deck are like a mile away from the bus and if you want to get a good seat on the bus you need to be quick. So everyone lines up on the pavement and in one big movement legs it across the road. I can't count the amount of times I've come an inch away from a truck/bus/car/bicycle.

A few weeks ago when I was tired I tried to make microwave macaroni. I put the bowl in the microwave, set the timer, got it out when I was supposed to, and realized that I had forgotten to put noodles in the bowl. It was just a bowl of hot water, so I had to put the noodles in and start again.
Curse my inability to function properly when I'm tired.

Well, there was the time I put the full pickle-jar in the trashcan, thinking it was... I don't know what I thought it was. Or the time I started a conversation with my father, only to realize I was talking to a complete stanger. Or when I went swimming and forgot my backpack... and shirt when I left. Sigh, at least we are not alone in our inattentiveness.
