you revert to habitual modes of thinking? Like when I was running around trying to do a million things on Thursday, and ended up buying a 20 meter phone cord instead of a 20 foot one.
I was looking at the numbers and didn't think to make the metric switch.
The idea for having a "super-long telephone cord" was for me to be able to check my email in the bedroom. Now, if I'm so inclined, I can take my laptop down the street and to the corner bar without having the slightest bit of telephone cord length interference.
Of course, at home, it's a bit too long.
