Have You Ever … Again …

Continuing the theme I began with the ‘pants on backwards’, I bring episode II of …

Have you ever …

… tried to turn off a light switch, and because you’re all excited about a thought you had when you were in the bathroom and you were buzzing by at a thousand kilometers an hour to reach your desk to write it down before you forgot it because you actually did forget the notebook you always keep in the bathroom, and you keep on missing the switch over and over again until you literally can’t hit the damn thing no matter how hard you try and you start laughing so hard you almost pee yourself even though you just left the bathroom and you still can’t turn the switch off?

Nah, me neither.


(I can’t believe I actually came across a video of someone turning off a light switch. You can find anything on YouTube if you look hard enough, and slightly concerning is the fact that finding this one didn’t take me all that long at all)

P.S. Wonder of wonders, after all that I did remember what my thought was!

  1. Good thing you kept a grip on that thought while struggling with the light switch!

    Yes, this happens to me all the time! I swear my brain searches for things like this just for fun, especially when I try to make it remember something… One time, it tried to make me put the kettle in the fridge…

    What I hate is when the power is off and I keep on flipping the light switch like it was going to come on!

    Never Give UP

  4. I can’t write when my brain is in this state. That’s barely one bar fr me on the ol’ brainometer.

    Haha! Youtube is a gem (sometimes). What does it for me, though, is there are usually two light switches within each reach of each other in our house (like an arm’s stretch apart) and I get confused whether I’ve flicked the right one… or the left one… or neither. And my mind just sorta… dies, I think.

      Hi Regine. 🙂 … welcome to my little corner of the interwebz … I didn’t exactly feel cute at the time though. 🙂

    I’m like Joan above. When the power goes out, it takes about 15-20 times of me flipping the switch with no result before my brain finally says, “Oh” and I stop doing it. Damn you Thomas Edison !!!! 🙂
