  You are absentminded. KGT

KGT 149:  The verb {Dach} literally means "be absent", but when applied to a person who is obviously present or otherwise accounted for, it is usually interpreted to mean that the person's mind has wandered. It does not mean absent-minded, which involves forgetfulness. Rather, it means that the person is, for whatever reason, not focusing on the task at hand. Nonslang equivalents are {qImHa'} (not pay attention) and {buSHa'} (not focus [on], ignore).

Dach  	not pay attentive, be distracted, lack focus (slang) (v)
lIj  		forget (v)

qaw 		remember (v)
Dugh  	be vigilant (v)
