Have you ever done something that is so ingrained you don’t have to think about doing it? Obviously yes. Chewing, breathing, walking – all that stuff you figured out way long ago.
Second question, does your brain ever glitch while you are doing that stuff?
Mine glitched when I went to use the whiz palace today. I went in the bathroom at work and started to sit down on the toilet and inside my brain I hear, “ACCKK you’re doing it wrong!!”. It really confused me. What was I doing wrong? I went through a quick mental checklist (while still hovering in a position my quads find unacceptable).
Am I in the right bathroom? Yes, this is the women’s bathroom.
Did I pull my pants down? Yep sure did.
Am I attempting to sit on a toilet and not some other sitting device, i.e. a chair or sofa. Yep, definitely a toilet.
That’s all the requirements for peeing right? Akk. Why does my brain think I’m doing this wrong?!?
It was a confusing minute for sure. I was a little thrown off by it. I went back to my office and googled “brain deterioration”. Google why are you less comforting than a cactus? I don’t think my brain is breaking down on a cellular level and I am slowly losing my ability to do the VERY basic things I’ve done for the past 24 years. Right? It’s not, it’s not. It’s just all that newlywed love and house renovations and halloween candy have pushed out some of the less important things, like knowing how to pee.
Does your brain ever glitch about very common, every day activities? Please say yes.
