Since you likely did not remember the last time you changed the lite bulb, it was a fair assumption that it simply burned out. Therefore, you
gathered what you needed in order to replace it.
Now, if you had just changed the lite bulb a few days ago and it suddenly did not work, there is a good chance you would have had the thought of just
seeing if it was "loose" before assuming it was burnt out.
Additionally, if you just had awoken for the day, your mind likely was not at "full speed" yet.
Possibly, if you were in full awareness mode when the bulb did not turn on you would have considered the easiest solution immediately (ie see if it
was loose) But hard to be on that level of alertness all the time, at least for myself.
Bet next time this happens, you will check if the bulb is loose first. Life is all a learning experience right? Now this episode is burned in your
mind. Trivial lesson sure, but, you can now apply it to all aspects of your life. Always check the simplest solution first!
Reminds me of when I looked all over the apartment for a missing video tape, even went to my folks thinking I left it there.
Come to find, it was in my own vcr in my own apt!
Personally, I think we miss the obvious or make too many assumptions because our minds are being assaulted with a ridiculous amount of stimuli at all
times. Hard to concentrate if not concentrating on concentrating
