The past few days, I’ve found myself doing or saying things that are very uncharacteristic of me, specifically forgetting certain words and losing track of my surroundings.
This morning, after I finished my bowl of cereal, I took my bowl and spoon and walked to the bathroom to put them in the sink. Moreover, it took me a minute, standing in front of the sink with my dish, to figure out that I was in the wrong room.
I don’t know what this means.
Two days ago, I was talking to my boss about pricing strategies, and I said, “I don’t think $20 is a lot to most people. I mean, you get money out of the vending machine in $20 increments.” Again, it took a minute to realize what I’d said. Thankfully, my boss was able to follow along, but it’s now a running joke.
What to Expect When You’re Expecting said this might happen, but I really didn’t think too much about it when I read the chapter on the 4th month. How thankful am I that I don’t need to deliver any presentations anytime soon. (No, I just provide the information – and you’d better believe I’m rechecking everything I do now!)
I just hope it doesn’t last too much longer.
