Pointing fingers

A bad case of failure-to-see-things-in-front-of-face today. Does anyone else look around the room twice, apparently checking every surface only to fail to find something as large as, say, an 8-cup cafetiere, and then have to slowly move their finger around in every direction and look carefully at what is directly being pointed at?

On particularly distracted days it is sometimes beneficial to actually say out loud what is being pointed at as the moving finger moves on. "Chilli sauce... kitchen roll... tin with pens in it... nail clippers... half empty wine bottle... cafetiere... AH!" Though if you can actually both see the item and name it and still not recognise it, you're pretty doomed. Maybe you should go out for coffee.

Trust me, it's in the genes, in the genes.
Question: where is my X
Answer: where it always is
Reply: No it's not
(here we can put in as many yes it is, no it isn'ts as you like, say 10 on a normal day)
Taken to usual place, point to said item which is exactly where it is supposed to be
Reply: a very surprised "Oh, there it is!" - as if the conversation and subsequent action of being led to item and nose pushed on to it had never taken place

Well, at least I'm aware of what I'm doing, or not doing, and have strategies.

This is where Gran came in handy: she would take me methodically to every place I'd been in the last hour or so, with me fuming and grumbling, and sure enough it would be there somewhere. 'No, of course it's not in the toilet - oh.'
