if it happened to him, i don’t feel that bad…

“Memory is averted from sensation by the will when, intent on something else, it does not allow it to fix itself on what is present… it happens to people reading, extremely often at any rate to me, that I find I have read a page or a letter and have not the slightest idea what I have read, and have to repeat it.” – Augustine, De Trinitate, Bk. XI.15

PHEW!
