Well, I seem to have lost it.
When I want to say right I say left.
When I want to say left I say right.
I even write it wrong while thinking it right.
So right is wrong and left is right.
Just started happening a couple of weeks ago.
I’m still fine on knowing which way to turn, walk, drive…
I just can’t give instructions reliably.
So don’t ask me.
The other thing that’s started – or stopped – is
I can’t answer direct questions.
Don’t ask me where I’ve just been.
Don’t ask what I think about a choice.
I stare back, wonder, peer through the fog, get lost.
I’m fine on my own agenda.
Talk about something and I’ll join in with my experiences, my choices, my views.
Just don’t ask me straight. Direct.
If you want an answer in a hurry, that is.
And so it goes on, eating away a bit more.
