I wish I could say I only have energy issues.
Alas, this is not the case. Conversation this week at work:
Angela: That’s very strange. I brought my camera today to take pictures of the preschool kids coming through the office, but they never showed up!
Glen: That’s next week.
Angela: What?! Oh boy. Man, I thought that things would be a lot better after my leave of absence.
Glen: What do you mean?
Angela: I thought my memory issues were stress related. So now that I am better, I thought I would have better memory.
Angela: Why not?
Glen: You’ve been like this since childhood.
Angela: What?! How would you know what I was like in my childhood?
Glen: I sat in your office with you and your sister and your sister said that you have always had memory issues since childhood.
Angela: What? She did?
(Glen shakes his head and walks away.)
Seeing as my sister Leslie is only 15 months older than me, I guess it would be true that she would know what I was like in my childhood. Just seems a bit odd that I was sitting in the office with her when she said that but have no recollection of it.
Or maybe that just proves the point…
