muscle memory

This morning, I was logged into my Athena account and I was curious as to whether anyone that I knew was still online. So, I typed "znol" and got the "No such file or directory" error indicating that I wasn't running zwgc.

For a split second, I couldn't remember the way to run znol without zwgc, but then I just started typing, and I typed "znol -l", which did what I wanted.

The crazy thing was that I'm pretty sure I never thought with my mind at all; that my fingers were just typing from muscle memory. I'm not sure if that's possible, but it sure felt like it.
