Absent Minded Researcher!
Today I went to my aunty's house in Dulwich. When I returned back home, I had to take the no. 3 bus to Brixton from where I was supposed to take the tube. I was waiting for the bus for 12 minutes and then the bus came. So I took out my ticket and waved at the bus. But the bus didnt stop! Then only I realized that I was standing in the opposite bus stop and waving at the bus in which I was supposed to go!!!! I then had to cross over to the opposite bus stop and take the bus back home after waiting for another 12 minutes!
This incident is quite worrying! My absent mindedness has cost me a lot the past 3 months!
My brand new Volkswago Bora got stolen in the gym because I forgot and left my car key in some treadmill. The car was just 4 weeks old! I bought the car on May 12 and lost the car on June 11th.
The insurance gave me another replacement car and I went and crashed this car (in one week's time), as I was lost in contemplation on the Divine!
Four years back, I got down at Baker Street and took the tube to Oxford Circus, and then again went to the opposite platform and took the tube back to Baker Street! And this time I was lost in contemplation on a JAVA program!
One worst incident was, I asked my best friend his name while we were having lunch in our hostel mess at REC, Trichy! I had been knowing him for three years!
My lecturer at REC, Trichy used to say "Arjuna, you are physically present but mentally absent!", and that seems to be very true. Whenever I talk to people, I get lost in my dreams and I just keep on shaking the head as if I am listening to them..and my friend Shweta once got pissed off and said "Arjuna, you dont listen to me, do you?"...I know girls dont like that! They love to be listened, but I can never do that unfortunately :(..
Are these worrying signs of Alzhemirs? Or are these signs of a famous researcher in the making ? ;) - I dont have a clue!
