Sandy told me last night she’d make me breakfast this morning. She does this about once a week or once every two weeks, depending on her schedule. This works out perfectly for me, since I’m not supposed to have a big breakfast very often, per my doctor. Anyway, when she told me I was very surprised. I remembered having a big breakfast just the other day, didn’t I?? She then reminded me that the other day we DIDN’T have breakfast, but she had made supper out of breakfast food (eggs, taters, sausage, onions, hot peppers, etc…

I was shocked. Even when she mentioned it, I remembered the meal, but didn’t even recall that it was supper and not breakfast! Are my days THAT mixed together now that I’ve been unemployed for so long, that I can’t even tell one PART of a day from another?? I think it’s the CRS, myself. I’ve had it for quite some time. I think I began suffering from it shortly after I met Sandy. Not that she CAUSED it, it was probably just a coincidence. For those wondering what CRS is, to put it “nicely” let’s just say it stands for “Can’t Remember Stuff.”

Fortunately, Sandy–my friend/lover/wife/right-hand/ball-and-chain/confidant/old lady/secretary/etc./etc.–is very understanding and forgiving. Or maybe because she’s an aide she just knows how to deal with people with disabilities… Anyway, she always straightens me out on these things so I can still function adequately in society, have a good breakfast now and then, keep all of my appointments, and still remember what day it is. Now if I could only fit her in my pocket, like today’s technology…
