Autopilot syndrome can drive one to distraction

Sometimes I suffer from a brain malfunction. I call it the auto pilot syndrome. It usually happens when I am performing a familiar and repetitive task. My mind seems to think my body can do the task without help, decides to set the body on auto pilot, and wanders off to explore more interesting thoughts. Often it goes on mental errands, looking over the agenda for the day or problem solving. Sometimes it engages in pleasant daydreams. This frequently happens as I am driving. When my brain returns, it begins to question. Where am I going? Am I on the right road? In the right town, even?
