Back in middle school, I drank a bottle of Turkey Hill Lemonade everyday with lunch. Normally I would screw the lid back on each time I waws done taking a sip and then shake it up everytime I want to take another sip. Well, I went to drink it in the middle of a lively conversation, forgot to put the cap on previously, shook it up...and well...I remember seeing lemondade sloshing around in the container and flying out the top into my face in slow motion. My friends laughed about that for days.
Yesterday I had a really clumsy day, especially at work. (I babysit.) So as if there isn't enough on the floor (which I don't manage to trip over), I'm tripping over chair legs, shoes, rugs, running into cabinets, dropping stuff. The works.
Last night I'm driving home from college on the highway in the dark and it's raining. I recently learned how to use the cruise control after having this car for a year and a half. So I have it on cruise, I'm going down a stretch of highway, and I'm like "holy crap! how am I staying inbetween the dotted lines?!" It was like I forgot how to drive my car/an out of body experience. All I could focus on was the space between the dotted lines in the 30 feet immediately in front of me. After doing this for maybe 20 seconds with bulging eyes, I finally figure out how to drive again, regain composure, continue on home.
I have also forgotten how to turn off the cruise control, even though my thumb is already hovering over the "cancel" button. I proceed to freak out until I figure it out. I have an adversion to using the break pedal and it never crosses my mind at the right time.
