I have often joked that when Bubba was born my IQ was lowered by 25% and when Bug was born it went down another 25%. I know I have issues. My brain freezes, loses files, has frequent errors. But if there were ever any doubt as to the way my mind is going, it was confirmed on Wednesday morning.
We slept as late as possible. Bubba rushed out to catch the bus. I planned to drop Bug by her school on the way to work. We were hurrying around trying to get finished and out the door in time. Bug was worried she'd be tardy. As we went out the door, Pete reminded me I needed to check the oil in my car. I told Bug to go ahead and get in the car, opened my door and lay my purse inside. Pulled a Kleenex to wipe the oil stick on. Noticed my windshield had a nasty film of dust on it that was now wet from morning dew. Switched on the wipers to get rid of this. Ooops! Need to crank the car first. So I turned the key, popped the hood latch and ran around to the front of the car.
I lifted the hood and pulled out the oilstick. Geez, louise!! There was oil almost up to the top of the stick! How odd??! So, I wipe the stick, put it back in, pull it out and there it is again!!? How on earth did my car get to be so overfilled with oil?!! Surely something is not functioning correctly. I reinsert the stick one more time, and as I reach over to pull it out it slowly dawns on me.........the car is running.....can't check oil with the motor running!!!!
Yeah, something wasn't functioning correctly...........MY BRAIN!!! LOL
So, you see....there is no telling what I will do, or when I will do it. I have put Bubba on alert that I want him to watch over me when I go completely senile. Until then let's have a good laugh and enjoy the trip! ;o) Reminds me of an entry I did a year ago about Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.
Speaking of entries, I went through the 14th Devotion on Marriage this morning. If you care to join me, be forewarned it contains some rather nasty words....like submit and yield. It's definitely not for the faint of heart.
I seem to be the only one in J-land who continued to receive alerts during the crisis, so I am way behind on visits. I'll see ya'll around and about.
