Billie, people like you and I are destined to be the ones that carry brain fog forever. Even if a TKI is not present. We go on boat rides with clergy and end up falling into the water. We fall up the stairs carrying a load full of towels and still break our nose. We have the best of intentions and we still end up screwing up the end result.
We went to the air show this weekend and my mother in law was talking about the planes. She was also hungry. She asked if anyone was going to ride on the hamburger. I never pointed it out but I am fairly sure she meant helicopter.
Today I could not remember my phone number to share it with a coworker of Nick's and when asked for Bob's I just said, 'I have no idea, it is in my phone under Bob.' The person gave me a look one usually reserves for a confused 5 year old that cannot find her mother.
Last week I was ordering pizza, I call the number I thought I had read in the book. Instead I called the owner of the pizza shop at his house, who lives a distance away from the restaurant. We had a nice chat then he gave me the number for his pizza place. He could not figure out how I did that, the numbers are not similar.
We have to accept we are a bit different than most. And when we receive those looks usually cast upon lost 5 year olds, we accept them with grace, because we most likely deserve them.
