Autopilot. We’ve all done it and when we do, we are always amazed at what get accomplished when our brains are shut off like this. It is as if we simply “checked out” for a moment or two and somehow, we have managed to attend to the things at hand without even realizing it!

5. The exhausting – (jefferlewpew).
Spent ages cooking dinner only to pick the plate up and empty it straight into the bin. I was so tired and hungry, I cried
