Why do I remember the name of my fourth grade teacher, but not the name of the new neighbor I’m meeting for the third time this month?
Why do I fall asleep during my favorite TV show while at bedtime, my brain won’t shut off for a second?
How can I rationally know I can handle something, but still get a knot in my stomach when I have to do it? (For me, it’s driving around an airport).
Why is it that after I promise not to tell anyone “something”, that particular “something” keeps popping into my head — even when I’m talking to people to whom that “something” would mean nothing?
Why do I get upset with people for doing something I know that I do too? (Like interrupting!)
Why do I get totally obsessed with binge watching a TV show, but never about writing a novel — or working at a soup kitchen?
Why do I keep collecting recipes in a giant folder when I know I’ll never use them? (When I do try a new recipe I go online because who has the time to sort through that giant folder?)
Why can I look for something for 10 minutes and not find it, but my husband finds it immediately – where I know I’ve already looked?
Why can I grapple with a problem and fail to find a solution, but hours later, when I’m doing something totally unrelated, the answer just pops into my head?
Why can I “zone out” while driving (you know, you suddenly find yourself way down the road and don’t remember getting there) — yet I don’t drive off the road or into the car in front of me?
Why does my snoring husband insist he was “wide awake” when I poked him — but I know you snore only when you are fully asleep?
Why is it that when I learn about a disease or syndrome, suddenly everyone I know, knows someone who has it?
Why can I get sick, but when I go to see the doctor, my symptoms disappear?
Why can I get a 1960’s song stuck in my head for days — but not a single password has ever stayed in my brain for that long?
PLEASE COME UP WITH SOME OF YOUR OWN AND SHARE THEM WITH ME!
