Tricks of the mind

Thanksgiving
The infiltrator

At cafe. Buy coffee.

Walk to coffee dispensers.
Dispense coffee into cup.

Grab napkin.
Need cup cover.
Grab coffee stirrer.

Look at coffee stirrer and realize I meant to grab cup cover.
Grab another coffee stirrer.

Walk away.

Take mental inventory of what I’m carrying.

Coffee cup. Check!
Filled with coffee. Check!
Napkin. Check!
Two coffee stirrers. O_o

Brain is now very confused.
Mentally reenact entire coffee acquisition process.

Realize I wanted coffee cup cover. Grabbed coffee stirrer.
Not once. But twice.

So this is what it feels like to be Jedi mind tricked? O_o

“These are not the coffee cup covers you are looking for.”
