For a moment I was excited because I had an excuse, but then I remembered I wasn't on my period. That got me thinking to all the other excuses I've heard for not remembering well.
Chemo brain. Allergy med brain. High blood pressure brain. Low blood pressure brain. Low blood sugar brain. Sugar brain. Alcohol brain. Wine cooler brain. Caffeinated brain. Not caffeinated enough brain. Finals brain. Stress brain. Boredom brain. Cupcake brain. And of course all the girlie ones: hormonal brain, pregnancy brain, baby brain, menopause brain, peri-menopause brain and now the new period brain.Can't we just admit we're distracted?
The Fine Print: The more I think of it the more I realize that all these excuses come out the mouths of women (not just the girlie ones). Guys will just say, "Shit. I forgot" and that's that. I'd say more but I forgot what I was going to say because I'm distracted. Peacocks. Club Scrap.
