Everyone has gotten a song stuck in their head but have you ever gotten a word stuck in your head?

It doesn't happen often to be but every now and then, I get a specific word stuck in my head and it keeps repeating at random, or like when I can't think of the word I'm looking for, that one comes to mind for no reason.

[@1056803,Iwashere2] It's not that big of a deal actually, it's just a thing that they do to make sure you're not at risk of cervical cancer. The word "Pap" is a shortening of the name Papanikolaou, who was the man that invented it.

[@6579,BlueMetalChick] thanks! I thought about Pap smear for at least 400 times within 2 hours .

Yep. Sometimes when I learn a new word that looks interesting, it gets stuck in my head for awhile.

As a kid I used to get words stuck in my head and I'd repeat them over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.

[@6579,BlueMetalChick] As a kid I once got the name Tobi stuck in my head, and I drove everyone mad saying "Tobi, Tobi, Tobi, Tobi!!!". The only way my mother cured it was by naming our first dog Tobi. Another time it was numbers!

It’s happened to me with a name. After I met this attractive guy named “Graham” I just kept saying “Graham” over and over in my head. After a while I wasn’t even picturing him so much as just saying the name lol

[@1007030,NinjaBoy] Yo I had a classmate named Graham and I used to always associate his name with chocolate cos my dad used to get me those chocolate covered graham crackers from Starbucks a lot lol

[@6579,BlueMetalChick] It does make me think of cookies and crackers 😁
