As I was standing in a special machine for a scan of my head, the words
” you want to have your head examined”
came floating back to me from childhood.I seem to recall it was an insult….
And it shows people believed insanity was a brain defect whereas a lot of the things we do when we are agitated might make sense if someone asked us a bit about our life.
After I had the scans two men were looking at them wondering if they had got the right place because what I have is not easy to see
In the end I told them to put gloves on and put a finger into my mouth to feel it
Well, I didn’t know it’s up to me to tell them what to do
Next,I’ll be having surgery and they’ll ask me to hold the knife while they decide what to cut out.Or maybe I’ll have to do it all while they learn…….
I absolutely will not behead myself in a hospital free
I will ask for £1,999,999 first.
My daft ideas as a child:
Instead of boiling the old kettle on the fire to make tea,I had a brilliant idea when I was eight years old
Why not put the teapot on the fire directly…..?
I was having to do things from the age of 7 or 8 which would be banned now
I decided as tea is not “dirty” then after stirring the tea I could put the teaspoon back into the drawer
That could have led to an interesting discussion… that milk is organic etc
Except I was only 7.
As someone said:dirt is only matter out of place.Cow’s milk should not be here in my fridge.So it is dirt.It should be feeding a calf.
I wonder why we use so much milk in our diet.Is it the comfort that reminds us of the benign breast? Though some were more benign than others.
