A Few Brain Cells Left.....

I had an opportunity to exercise my brain today, and I am glad to say that the grey matter came through for me. Briefly. 

I got a call from a person who volunteers for the same non profit that I do. He was late for an appointment, and in his hurry to close up the building, broke the key off in the lock. Could I come down and deal with the situation? He felt terrible but there was nothing else he could do.

I headed over to the building. 

Our non profit runs on a very low budget, so I was hesitant to call a locksmith. I grabbed a screwdriver and my cell phone. My friend Susan and I were successful in taking apart the lock, retrieving the broken key, and putting everything back together again. We high-fived each other and told each other how smart we were. 

Feeling extremely proud of myself, I headed back home and stopped by the grocery store to pick up a few groceries. 

"Hey, lady!" 

I turned around as I was strutting out of the store toward my car. A cashier was running after me clutching the groceries that I had paid for then forgotten at the checkout. 

Well, a fully functioning brain was nice while it lasted.

Thank you again for your comment! It is always interesting to learn about diseases that are not well known.

It's great to have that often forgotten feeling of a working brain. When we're brought to reality it's even better to have a good laugh about it!
