You know that movie, 50 First Dates? If not, look it up.
You’re reading this for the first time, right? Yes. Well, me too, or at least I will be. Telling friends & family this is pretty weird. Here how it works.
I take sleep meds called Sublinox. It’s an hypnotic made to help fall asleep. But it has a side effect of inhibiting memory (storage of, for example, writing in this ongoing letter blog) until sleep is underway. It takes about 15 minutes to work, and, during that time, I cannot study, talk on the phone, visit with family, nothing. I can make coffee ’cause I know that’s something I do every night. I wake up in the morning and thank the person who made the coffee for me. All I have to do is turn it on. Well, really, it was me. But I just don’t remember doing it.
So when I read this blog sometime – don’t know when – I’ll go, “Oh, somebody has broken into my server, left a blog entry in my writing style, and posted it. That was … let’s see … right about the same time I was getting ready for bed. I wonder who that was?”
I can’t do homework because I won’t retain it. I can’t have important conversations, like with classmates to get things done, for the same reason. I can’t change passwords! That would be bad. About the only thing I can do is go to bed.
So that’s what I’ll do. Good night, y’all.
