Do you ever catch yourself absently minded thinking about an ex, and straining to remember some innocuous mundane detail about them?
“What was her cats’s name….it was a normal name….some sort of persons name….” then you dig and dig in your memory file and finally come up with it, “Her cats name was Barry!!! Oh yeah Barry. Barry the cat… wait… why was it suddenly so important for me to remember that? I’ll never see her or her cat again…that was a waste of my time.”
