I just learned this via e-mail from my cousin who is educated and knows these things.
(The pictures have nothing to do with the entry, I just like them for a distraction, they are 3’s)
And I thought I had short term memory loss due to age....
What A Relief To Learn This...
Ever walk into a room with some purpose in mind, only to completely forget what that purpose was?
Turns out, doors themselves are to blame for these strange memory lapses. Psychologists at the University of Notre Dame have discovered that passing through a doorway triggers what's known as an event boundary in the mind, separating the past set of thoughts and memories from the next.
Your brain files away the thoughts you had in the previous room and prepares a blank slate for the new locale. It's not aging, it's the stupid door!
Thank goodness for studies like this.
I asked some ministers if it was okay to lie to yourself. I got varied answers, most thought it was funny.
I read the other day the a man with a girth of 38” at the navel (not naval) was in danger of heart disease.
Now like most men, I keep lowering my belt, staying in 32” trousers. (I asked Sherry to turn her head so as not to embarrass her) Then I got me nekkid. I pulled tape I was 38” Quickly I sucked my gut in and dropped it to 37”. BUT MY PANTS SAY 32!!!!
So Imma lying to myself. Gotta find me a girdle. This ain’t rite.
I am cutting out the snacks in the evening, except the apple, a few nuts and two pieces of hard candy.
It is working I am already down to 39”, that wasn’t hard at all.
I know y’all want to know, so I will make a periotic report, every ten years.
If you catch yourself lying to yourself, STOP IT!
I don’t think I ever saw a gas station with ‘Beautiful REST ROOMS.’
A Pontiac & Merc day!
(I just noticed that is Little America, West-Midwest? I know we have stopped at a place called Little America)
