Why Does My Mind Wander ?
« on: 31/08/2008 18:17:01 »
Dear...erhmmm......ah Naked Science Peeps,

Happy Sunday !

As a sheepy, I am of course dedicated, determined and........erhmmm...*taps fingers*......Focused !!...yes yes....focused !!

Looks...here's someones brain !..clearly brains are made from gold !





Now listen.....I errr....want to ask ewe something.......AH !!

Why does my mind often wander ?..why's that then ?...why can I one minute be concentrating on the task in hand and then the next minute find that ten minutes have passed !!..?..if you know what I mean ?


Thannks for cogitating, deliberating and digesting this for me !

Neil

Neil, it strikes me that you have a very active and enquiring mind that, if it does not receive the stimulation and level of activity sufficient to satisfy it, its independent streak takes over, and it goes seeking to fulfill its needs, whilst leaving the rest of you behind.  ;D (Don't worry too much, if it's any consolation to you, my mind does the same thing, and who could blame it, when saddled with such a wrecked body as I have.  ;) )

Thank you for this...

LOL..perhaps I should have sought a career in Market research !!

I'm so sorry about your wrecked body !!....it's shame we can't trade them in for newer models !!


well..some men do for younger wives and vice-versa !!

Continuing hugs and shmishes are sent to you for some rest, relaxation and comfort !!

hugs (but not too tight)

I can't remember who it was who said "I let my mind wander but it never came back..."

I am sure I read that years ago in a Rag Mag! However, I've certainly seen it on a T-shirt... Perhaps it was Neil wearing it? ;D

Think I want one that reads... 'My body's asleep - it just forgot to tell my head!'   ;)
