At Church

So I went to the bathroom at Church today and as I was washing my hands I noticed that my tie was a little short. So I untied it and evened it out. However, as I started to tie my tie I started thinking too much about tying my tie. Since I pretty much tie my tie out of muscle memory, as I thought about how to tie my tie the muscle memory went away and I forgot what to do. This occasionally happens. When it does I usually try to think about something else and for some reason, focusing on something else helps return the muscle memory. However, as I tried to think about something else I became overwhelmed with the thought of how awkward it would be if someone else came into the bathroom and saw me struggling to tie my tie. Just then someone came into the bathroom which just made the situation worse. I turned by back from him and tried a couple more times to spark my muscle memory but I still couldn't do it. Finally, I went into a stall, closed the door, and for some reason the thin metal wall gave me the confidence needed to revive my muscle memory and I tied my tie. I then flushed the toilet so no one would suspect a thing and I left. That is all.
