At my friend’s house, I wanted to warm up my cup of coffee, so I put it into the microwave, closed the door, and looked at the control panel. I was bewildered by the writing on the control panel. All the presets and numbers. A feeling of being annoyed bubbled up. I pushed a button to head it off. The microwave turned on and started warming my coffee. Surprised, I looked more closely at the button. It was labeled “milk or beverages” – I had pressed the correct preset. Evidently, I had pressed the correct button before consciously registering how the button was labeled.
Thank you, subconscious. What else can you tell me today?
