Even a Ph.D. physicist forgets his words from time to time, just like all of us

It seems on a daily basis a word I’m trying to think of escapes me. Maybe it’s age, maybe it’s that having kids has sucked any short or long term memory I used to possess out of my brain, forever. If anyone else experiences this on the daily, this next Twitter thread is for you.

Paul Coxon — a physicist in materials science at the University of Cambridge — admitted he, too, forgot what he was trying to say during a meeting with colleagues and instead of saying the word “photon” decided “shiny crumb” would have to suffice.
