I think my brain has gone rusty and is about to fall out. I don't know. I don't know if it is the fact that I don't interact with people as much at the moment, because I am still looking for work after the redundancy. I still see my friends and family though, so it's not as if I am a hermit.
I've always been a bit of a scatterbrain, but recently I've either been getting worse, or maybe just getting worse at hiding
it. I am looking at life in terms of mistakes, and that for every task I undertake or just anything I do, I will make at least one mistake. Just about every time. To the extent that if something goes well with no hiccups, I am amazed.
I went for a recruitment agency interview: I got a parking ticket.
I promised my friend I would record Atlantis for her: I forgot. Worse, I knew I needed to do it, and kept putting it off, till I actually forgot.
Trying to calculate the simple split of a restaurant bill: I could actively NOT DO THE MATH. Numbers have never been my strong point, but I could feel the slippery little buggers racing around trying to get away from me. At one point I thought I had the answer, and as soon as I opened my mouth it had slid away from me.
My decision making ability was never sharp, but I found myself asking my friend in a shopping trip: Do I need this item?
Today I had a chap from Auto Glass come out to replace my windscreen and when he phoned, I forgot it was MONDAY. I was all shocked that he was checking about coming round and was like, but they said it would be Monday. His answer? It IS Monday.
My friend says that my system/brain has had a huge shock in terms of the redundancy and is acting all stunned. I latched onto that theory as a face-saving posibility, but maybe I was always this way and just used to be able to cover my tracks more. Maybe I am just being a drama queen and this is just life and I am making more of it than it is because I am freaked out generally.
Oh, well, on the positive side i went to see John Barrowman in Robin Hood, the panto, with three friends, and I had bought the tickets, planned the route, drove us all into the city to the theatre, ordered the interval drinks, and it DID go ok. And the panto was marvelous!!
