I Know What I Meant.


I knew what I meant when I said it. I resented being asked again, that confused looked on his face. All I wanted was a glass of ice. Why was he looking at me that way? I told him twice now, the second time a little louder. What was so hard about getting ice?

Turns out that what I really said, was "Get me a cup of glass".......

Yes, it sounds funny and I'm laughing about it...but on the other hand it really scarred me.
You know why. Every time I forget something or say a silly word in place of another, I think ..ok...I'm getting it....It just scares me because of my Mom with her Alzheimers. I can't help it.

Peace

We all say things like that once in a while, Odat. I can't remember stuff lots of times because I'm multi-tasking and I'm sure you are, too.

How about relaxing with a coff of cuppee?
I've said that - kinda funny.

A joke for odat: One buddy asks another "Have you ever had a Freudian Slip?" "What's that?", he asks. "It's where you want to say one thing, but you say something else" he answered. "Yeah! I did this morning!" "I wanted to say to my wife, Please pass the sugar, but what I said was You lousy bitch, you've ruined my whole life".....:)

I do that all the time!

I once told my hubby to put the potato salad in the garage... yep, he did what I needed to be done... put the laundry in the dryer!

That happens a lot with me. I don't think it's Alzheimers... I think it's just inappropriate retrieval cues in the brain...

Hugs, Odat!

Just today I attended a talk by a conservationist biologist and he was talking about roosting herons but his slide was labelled "Roasting Herons". A Freudian slip? I hope not!

Oh, then later there was a slide of a plant called Xylocarpus but the typo on the slide read Xylocrapus.

Peace.

Odat said...

LGS, Roasted herons taste like crap! ;-)

Peace

M@ said...

Reminds me of the time the marketing woman interviewed me for a job and asked me if I'd like anything to drink.

"Yeah, get me a vagina of pussy--"

Whoops.

Loving Annie said...

It would scare the crap out of me too. But I think you just have so much on your mind that sometimes that happens and it isn't a sign of anything other than being mega busy.
