Today, I am grateful for second chances. If some people had not given me a second chance, they would not be in my life now. And vice versa.
What more can you say about second chances? You really can’t, so I’m going to move on to another topic.
I’m having such a difficult time sleeping recently. I have recently had a change in medication and I’m blaming that. The result is that I am as exhausted as I have ever been. I am so tired that I have actually become stupid.
I noticed it yesterday while I was getting my hair cut. As the stylist was cutting my hair and trying to talk to me, I was having a hard time concentrating enough to come up with an answer to her questions. A typical sentence would go something like this, “Matt bought a dirt bike [long pause] sometime this year and he wrecked it and he got hurt. It was bad.” This was in reply to the question, “Have you done anything fun lately.”
I’ve never been stupid. I feel like I’m inhabiting someone else’s body. Or really that my brain has been replaced with someone else’s brain. Maybe I’ll try what George Costanza did in an episode of Seinfeld — if I give up sex, I’ll get smart.
This is a pretty lame blog. I hope you will give me a second chance after I get smart again.
You are very fortunate to never have been stupid. I’ve been stupid on a regular basis, so I can be very forgiving of others’ occasional (or singular) lapses!
Oh, I have committed plenty of stupid acts, but I have never truly been unintelligent. I don’t like the view.
Good point, though. Just cause you’re smart doesn’t prevent you from doing stupid things.
