Hey, it happens to the best of us, right?
I’m talking about when your brain has a momentary lapse and for some reason, you can’t come up with a simple word even if your life depended on it.
What a weird experience! But we all go through it here and there.
And it’s always hilarious.
And these folks talked about how ridiculous those experiences are so we can all laugh with them (and AT them).
So let’s see what they had to say!
1. This is magnificent.
I’m going to start using this phrase immediately.
can’t stop thinking about when the italian exchange student forgot the word for “carousel” and called it a “horse tornado”

2. That PhD just failed you.
What the hell happened?
Hello my name is Paul, I have a PhD in physics and thanks to a random brain freeze forgot the word for photon so had to call it a “shiny crumb” in front of my colleagues 😐

3. That is a major FAIL.
And we’re sorry abou this.
4. I’m sorry, I don’t understand…
Please start again from the beginning.
5. This is a mess.
Hopefully they’re not having an “Attsma” attack right now.
6. Unsleep me.
You’re blowing it! Use your words!
7. These are both excellent.
Vroom vroom juice needs to be adopted in this country.
Husband is Colombian and he forgot the word for gas, so he told me to fill up his car with vroom vroom juice

8. Let’s all go to the liquid zoo.
You know what I mean?
9. Be careful with your arm hinge.
This one is just bizarre.
I just forgot the word elbow for about 5 minutes. The best I could come up with was 'arm hinge'

10. Take your time…
You got pretty close!
11. You’ll get nothing and like it.
That was a total disaster.
12. What are you trying to say here?
I’m a little confused right now…
My roommate got super stoned a couple weeks back and found out you can order a personalized big toblerone. He immediately forgot about it until it showed up last night pic.twitter.com/7NFydTqRQk

13. That works.
It might even catch on, who knows?
I forgot the word “handshake” so I just said pre-covid salutation

14. What do you call it?
Water hungry is now the norm.
Has this ever happened to you?
If so, please tell us your story in the comments.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks in advance!
