Do you suffer from brain fatigue, having collected too much to hold in that memory bank? Are there things you wish you could forget because they’re so mundane it’s like an irritating dream over and over?
I forget a slew of things, really I do… there’s just too much going on in my brain to collect everything, so I try to file it away in my “research” box so I can retrieve it later. And then there are things I cannot forget no matter how hard I try.
Some of which, admittedly, have helped me out along the way. One day, many many moons ago, I was watching reruns of a show (having missed out on the actual shows for some reason) and “Monica” insisted that the tag for the sheets/bedspread go on the RIGHT side. Her sense of right and wrong to all things detailed left “Chandler” in bewilderment. This elicited the laughter, but I tell you what it’s because I related to HER! I had no idea this was true even though I tried it and it seemed to work on my personal sheets okay until I stumbled across a hotel maid blog stating the exact same thing! Okay not in Monica’s words, but you catch my drift.
In my little world of details, this has been an important one (detail) for me to know. I don’t know that I’ve ever learned anything very practical and tactical from a sit-com before or since, but there you have it.
Tell us your deep dark secrets of things you’ve learned from comedy! We’d love to read it!
