Set your car keys on the dining room table and walk away. Think about your car keys. Visualize the keys. Remind yourself repeatedly, ”Car keys on table. Car keys on table. Car keys on table.” While rambling off your “car keys on table” mantra, search your pants pockets, handbag and coat for your car keys and ask yourself, Where the heck are my keys?
Dude, where’s my memory at? Brain Fart 2. Christa Zilch. Zero. Nada.
