I hate it when I dial up to the internet (you know this procedure takes about a minute), because I have something in mind like a very important theme, and just a little link I need in my current thought flow is missing, so I feel urged to do some internet research
& then - online - I start the google or lycos engine etc. & then realise I have totally forgotten what I was searching for. Because if I'm in a state of waiting for something my mind often wanders & forgets where it has started - hmm - or am I getting old?
It's the same thing like waking up & knowing you had a fantastic, extraordinary dream & you are trying to remember these lost kingdoms of beauty & imagination, of strange & exciting adventures - but giving up within half an hour with the halfbitter certitude of having lost this sealed dream memory forever. Paradize or Hell's gates closed!
What if I wake up and have quite forgotten who I am or who my wife is? - By the way: I'm not married. Hmm - or have I already forgotten?
I shall find out in google, if I don't forget the goal of my search while dialing up..
