    I'm pretty sure this happens to absolutely anyone.

    I don't really need to be tired. Entirely random, usually it will be when in the mental world and then forced to respond to something environmental, like putting your pants on, where the "handoff" gets tripped up.
    That happened to me once. I forgot how to put my sweater back on. True story.

    Washing my hair twice, missing freeway exits, wearing underwear inside out, wearing pants backwards, sitting or standing and staring into space, almost brushed my teeth with face wash but I caught myself (ha!)

    Also the "what was I doing?" and "How do I do this?" moments as well as forgetting certain things I studied/crammed the night before in the middle of a test.

    Get that. For me it links into what I was talking about in this thread about not thinking conscious thoughts. I'll be so tuned out that it'll take me a moment or two before I can comprehend what someone is telling me. It's like I'm here but my brain has gone bye-bye.

    I get this more times than is probably normal, and it is a terrifying experience each time!

    Sometimes, I'll just sit there willing my brain "to turn back on" or I won't even notice that I've "spaced out".
    I've also had the experience of forgetting how to put clothes on, though in my instance it was tying my shoes.

    I have a sort of similar thing where sometimes I'll be doing something mindless but still requires enough mental concentration that I can't completely drift off to think about other things and I'll find that my brain will just start jabbering, often mildly offensive and suddenly I'll reengage with my thinking process and go "what?"

    It usually happens to me when I should be paying attention and I've drifted off. It's worse when it's in class and I have to fill in the blanks.

    My friends like it when I drift off in the middle of a sentence...

    Me: "Today I went to the store and..." *drifts off and starts thinking about something else*

    Friend: "So you did that and...."

    Me: *Blank look* "Wait... what was I talking about again?"
    Nothing can become anything if you tilt your head and squint.
