Rambling #7- Have you ever…

Experienced a word-block?

Dont give me a puzzled look. Oh, I’m talking about the situation where a word is right there at the tip of your tongue but you just can’t remember it! I had such a moment today! I can’t tell you how helpless and desperate a moment it was, where I knew oh-so-well the word I was looking for but I just couldn’t get it out of me.

Ma & I were coming out of a salon after a good pampering session. As we walked to the parking lot, I sensed that my orientation was a bit disheveled and I couldn’t remember where I had parked my car. Of course it just took a few seconds to get my bearings right and we got to the car.

What I didn’t see coming was the complete blanking out of the word “orientation” when I started to describe Ma my brief disoriented state. No amount of racking my head could get me to pull that word out from whichever nook it was hiding. I kept explaining the state in long drags of sentences, whereas all I needed was that one word to get my point across! My memory was throwing out words like configuration, illusion, allusion, at me. But “orientation” was nowhere in sight. Ma, sensing my helplessness, pulled her tablet out and punched in a few catch-words online. Voila! There it was. My orientation!

Gosh, the day is almost over! I had better publish if I have to be in the game!

BTW, I realize that I am yet to reply to your comments. I have at least been able to “like” them as a mark to tell you that I truly appreciate you coming by and leaving your thoughts. The days: Β have been whisking by even before I could think of pausing for a while. I will get to replying as soon as I can:)

Good night!

Edited to add: Just found out that this is my 300th post! Feels surreal to think that a few weeks ago, I had almost deleted my blog πŸ˜€
