I caught a pretty bad case of strep throat the other day.
Not realizing just how sick I was, I went to work. After almost passing out, my manager sent me home.
Where I stayed in bed all day.
And the next, except for a trip to the doctor’s office and the pharmacy.
Today I finally felt well enough to get out of bed.
But all this time spent in bed seems to have addled my brains.
This morning I took a shower and brushed my teeth for the first time in days.
It took me three tries to brush my teeth. First I walked to the bathroom, then realized I’d forgotten to grab my toothbrush and toothpaste. I went back and grabbed them, then got to the bathroom only to realize that I’d grabbed my glasses case instead of my tube of toothpaste. On the third trip back to the bathroom I got it right, and accomplished brushing my teeth with no other problems.
I’ve only been brushing my teeth for twenty or so years, of course it’s understandable that I’d forget the basic steps.
