Tricks of the mind

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.”
