Information Out of Reach

Now this is frustrating, and it’s happened to me more than once. I’m having a conversation with someone and trying to describe a concept. I’m struggling a little because there’s a word for what we’re discussing, but I don’t know it. Sure I could pull out my phone and Google it, but that breaks up the continuity of the conversation, and will probably send us down a different path anyway. Eventually the conversation ends. Later I pull my iPod out of my pocket and start listening to a podcast. 10 minutes in the conversation shifts to the same topic I was just discussing. Ah, right, that’s the term I looking for. Are you freaking kidding me? The information I was looking for was in my pocket the whole time? If I had been 10 minutes late for that meeting I would have had the information I needed? Argh. Too much information, too little time.

Grappling sometimes, but mostly just trying to get others to grapple.
