Glad it's not me !

Whew!
What a relief to learn this..
Ever
walk into a room with some purpose in mind, only to completely forget what that
purpose was?


Turns out, doors themselves are to blame for these strange memory lapses.

Psychologists at the University of Notre Dame have discovered that
passing through a doorway triggers what's known as an event boundary in the
mind, separating one set of thoughts and memories from the next.
Your brain files away the thoughts you had in the previous room and prepares a blank
slate for the new locale.

It's not aging,it's the door


Thank goodness for studies like this.

Now there's a good argument for working from home - you don't have to pass through the front door and forget everything!
