Absent-minded

DEFINITION

Forgetful. Preoccupied. Your mind is absent from small talk or conversation as if you are thinking of other matters. One can be absent-minded because you have attention deficit syndrome or you could be absent mind like a scientist, so pre-occupied thinking about their projects, they forget to wear socks, etc. I suppose someone who day-dreams during school would be considered absent-minded as well.
