The phenomenology of trying to do philosophy while in the middle of a semester

It’s like this. You’re really hungry for beans. But first you need to wash the pot. But then you need a sponge — where is it? Then the phone rings. It’s the guy who took your sponge. Why did he take the sponge, and why is he calling to tell you? Rats, the water is overflowing. Remember, you want the beans. But first, you need to find the pot again; you set it down somewhere. Is that guy still on the phone? Can I find another sponge? And so on.
