Tomorrow when I have my 6-month checkup with the neurologist, he will ask if I have had any MS symptoms. I will have to tell him Marcia has been counting every time I choke at work (and thank you, Marcia).
(I need a 'sincere' emoticon so people know when I'm not being sarcastic.)
Oh, and I have to tell him about my new personality trait. That I am of late a music-lover. Forty CDs in the last 6 months. Is this excessive? That I have joined a fan club. Granted, it's the BNL fan club, and how could you not join a fan club of a band that uses lyrics like "tableau" and "pedagogue?" Still, I don't think this is normal.
Oh - and that I'm going on a cruise with said rock band. Well, next January. And I'm psyched about it.
Oh - and that I've almost filled up my Nano in 3 months. AND not to forget: I've taken up the guitar after a lifetime of complete music disinterest.
All those things he'll probably write off as "patient presented with mid-life crisis" and will focus, as usual, on my handwriting, gait, and mental competence. (This is probably the first time I won't shrug stupidly when asked if I've been "cognitively impaired." I always want to drool a little when I answer that question. But THIS time when he asks about mental competence I intend to casually mention I went in to this work-related Chemistry project at a grade-school level and sucked up Chemistry in a month. Bwahahahah.) We shall see.
