I am not a fan of Topomax, mainly because it can make a person stupid. I’ve tried it a LOT of times and it has made me really stupid. Really fast.
I did mention, oh….about 50 times that it makes me really stupid and my doctor, Dr. Big Shot told me I’d be dandy if I just started slow and low.
I’ve heard that before and from more guys than just him.
Doctors for some reason think maybe I don’t know what I’m talking about. I mention it REALLY strongly and they always say oh, whoever prescribed it didn’t start me off low and slow enough. Believe me, any lower and slower, I wouldn’t be talking it at all. I’d be taking it next week.
So I started low and slow…just like he told me to and this morning I got lost on the way to work.
I turned right instead of left and ended up on 13th instead of 10 1/2. (There are no signs out in the back of beyond. You just have know how to get to where you are going.)
So I had NO idea where I was. No idea where I came from either (told you this stuff makes you stupid).
I managed to get back on the road I was on (it doesn’t have a name, either) and thought to myself, “Ogden. I’m going to Ogden.” (I am nowhere NEAR Ogden.)
As I’m going past the big barn off the road, I know I’m supposed to turn where the Budweiser sign used to be seven years ago but out here in Boswell-land, there are no signs, no street names and the only landmarks are crops and it is harvest time right now, so the hay bales that were in the fields yesterday are gone today.
There are two huge prisons out here and I’m not real sure at this point which one I’m supposed to go. No worries!
I’ll go to eenie meanie mine-y-mo and pick this one. If I’m wrong, they won’t let me in and then somebody in charge will look at my badge and figure out where the heck I’m supposed to be and call them up to fetch me.
Oh, I eventually sorted it all out. I picked the right one. When I got into the check in, they let me in. I recognized the door to my office. We were moving, so it was all topsie turvy anyway. I spent most of the day watching inmates strip the floors and move stuff. It was sort of like grown up recess.
My new office isn’t ready yet. Maybe tomorrow. Or not. I only have a desktop and a box and I’m not even real sure what my new job even is.
Probably pretty apt, doncha think?
