"Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most."
Yesterday, at the sink, I grabbed the toothpaste instead of the hand soap. I was mid-squeeze when the brain alarm sounded. It sounded like this: WHAT IN TARNATION ARRRRE YOU DOING?! Today, I went to the copy machine. Hit copy. Waited until the clunking ceased. And then I walked away. Clutching oxygen in my claw. I sat down. Time passed. A lot of time. There's more. I used my soup spoon to swirl my coffee cocktail during a business lunch. I have tripped more times in the past two days than my acrobatic toddler years. I burn what I cook. I pace when I sleep. I think when I read. I ramble when I write. I am Unproductive. Fed up. Sad. A ball of emptiness, being paddled across job and home. I am completely, totally, absolutely DONE WITH WINTER!
