Absent-Minded Journalist

I've been thinking about the dilemma KXLY weathercaster Kris Crocker finds herself in this PM — after inadvertently putting her library books in a USPS drop box. I've never done that. But I'm extremely absent-minded. Last week, I almost backed out of the garage without opening the garage door. Luckily, I was going so slowly (because I know I'm capable of doing something like this) that I felt the slight bump against the garage door and stopped. No damage. I've done other things like drive off with a cup of coffee or my glasses on the hood or roof of the vehicle. How about you?

Question: Are you absent-minded? Describe something you did while not paying attention.
