Is it possible that instead of my fantastic MLC (Mid Life Crisis) being the cause of my ever worsening series of blog entries, I could have some sort of weird neurological situation going on? I mean, you hear these stories about people who grow some weird tumor on their brain that causes them to suddenly change personalities, speak languages they have no business knowing, and doing off the wall things. Maybe something like that is going on with me.
By any disinterested third-party evaluation of the facts, an observer could say that I have made some really questionable choices fairly recently, if not in the last several years. What if this series of hi-jinks, these relationships / friendships / flashes of flesh, could be attributable to something medical? I don't offer that as an excuse in any sense, by the way. It is an honest question. I'm happy to take credit for the things I've said, written or done and I feel comfortable calling these things signs of my MLC. But I can't help but wonder if there is something else going on.
I don't know why I even ponder this but I did have a strange thought the other day. What if I woke up in hospital recovery room and the doctor says, "We removed the tumor, you should be back to normal now." And then I login to this blog and start reading and I'm suddenly shocked!
I did what?
Like I say - just a passing thought.
