Drawing a blank
There are plenty of times in life when we have something important to say, or to remember, or to do. And then, for some reason, when it comes time to say or remember or do those things, we suddenly can’t remember what they were. This is called drawing a blank. Imagine a jar full of little pieces of paper. On most of those pieces something interesting or inspiring is written. But when you reach into said jar to pull a piece of paper, yours has nothing written on it. You’ve literally drawn a blank.
We often draw a blank during important moments in our lives. It’s one of the things that make us human. Our brains simply fail to produce the necessary action we want. Whether on a test, during an interview, or just in regular conversation, even the smartest among us draws a blank from time to time. Don’t worry too much about it. None of us is perfect.
