Brainfarts, it isn’t a very appealing word is it? They are a very appeal experience either. To me, a brain art is when there is something, some little fact or knowledge or act that you know how to do, or you should know how to do and you don’t. It is like that sector in your memory bank has suddenly become unavailable to be accessed. If you are anything like me, then the knowledge eclipsed by the brainfart will suddenly and somewhat miraculously appear at the most inopportune time and come spurting from your mouth leaving a look of bewilderment on the faces of everyone nearby you.
What, like that has never happened to you?
It seems like it is happening more and more often to me, some people say it is linked to stress. I can believe that, the amount of stress in our day to day lives isn’t diminishing, if anything with the accessibility we have to constantly be “available” whenever whoever needs us makes us feel that our precious downtime could be interrupted and absconded with at any moment.
So how do we battle this brainfart phenomenon? The hell if I know, if I had those answers do you think I would be righting this blog? I do expect there to be teams of talented and possibly slightly inebriated scientist working on this at some ivy covered university in the very near future. Still, that doesn’t help you and me in the present does it?
Oh! I’ve got it. We can….
Damn, you guessed it…BRAINFART.
I hope I made you smile, have a great day!
