What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

2/26/2019: It happens to me all the time that a word I use regularly disappears from my brain just when I need it. I find these disappearances maddening. They inevitably turn up later, but stubbornly refuse to be found when I need them. Today’s very funny thing is a Twitter thread about just that thing.

The thread was started by Paul Coxon, a University of Cambridge physicist, and it proves that these lapses of language can happen to even the best and brightest of us. Coxon shared with his Twitter followers that while talking with his colleagues, he forgot the word for photon, and instead called it a “shiny crumb.” He was a very good sport about it!

Let the hilarity ensue!

  3. I go to the toolbar. Click on a web browser. The browser homepage opens. Then for the next ten minutes, I sit and wonder why I opened it? Bet I am not the only one. Hal
