The Drawer is Stuck

Posted by Lisa Laree to Beer Lahai Roi

I've figured it out.

All those times that I look at someone I know well and can't come up with a  name...those moments in conversations when the noun I'm looking for eludes me...basically any time I can't come up with a bit of something that I KNOW I's what happens...

The little neurons in my brain run to the file cabinet where that particular bit of info is stored and discover the drawer is stuck.   They can't get it open to give me the requested info in a timely fashion.

Oh, they usually do manage to get the drawer open eventually...sometimes minutes...sometimes hours...later and that random bit of info will suddenly pop into the forefront of my consciousness,  but at the moment I really need it - nothing.

So if I'm talking to you and suddenly get a blank look on my face and tell you, 'The drawer is stuck', you'll know that I really do know, but that data is just not accessible at that moment.

'Cause, you know, the drawer is stuck. ;-)
