Thoughtless Act

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?

    That’s awesome. Two days ago I was standing up eating a hot dog in my kitchen, when without even thinking about why, I pulled my shirt up above my stomach and started playing with my shirt. Not even 10 seconds later my hot dog dripped a huge glob of ketchup right on my stomach! My shirt was thankful🙂
