The brain tricks itself
or backtracks and causes doubts to appear.
Where did I place my glasses?
Did I take my medication?
When was the last time I looked at my calendar?
Can I get away with not showering? Again?
Ok, I did just take a shower right?
Didn’t I already cook supper?
I know I did last night.
Wait, that was two nights ago.
Maybe that is why the kids keep saying they are hungry.
They are old enough to raid the fridge if they are hungry.
Now about that shower….
When was the last time I had one?
