  1. Know the feeling. I got Denise a gift for before the wedding and I can’t find it.
    They will probably find after I die and they go through the house. So sad.

  2. I’ve heard this phenomenon explained by a neurologist. He said that our short term memory wipes the slate clean as we enter a new room. This wipes away the reason we went into the room. When we return to the original location our recent memories are accessed again, reminding us why we had gone to the new room in the first place. It’s good to know but doesn’t lessen the frustration!

    • Thank you! It does help — I’ll try to be thinking about the reason AS I walk into the room. Hopefully it will only take a bit of self-training.
