A Day in the Life: My Inability to Speak

Recently I have been having some serious issues with choosing the correct words while talking.  The only other time I have had this was last year when I had somewhat addled my brain by contracting the flu.  It’s like I know what I want to say but then these other words come out of my mouth.  For example:

I was out with my roommate the other night.  A friend texted me something really long and, aloud, I said “Man, he sent me back a small novel.”  Except that’s not what I said, that’s not what I said at all.  Instead I said, “Man, he sent me back a small llama.”  Llama? Where does that even come from?  I guess the words maybe sound a little alike? Novel…llama… kinda?  But I digress.

Take two, the other night I was sitting in my living room and one of my roommates asked me to text one of our friends about getting dinner on Friday.  I said, “Okay I will, I just can’t find my phone.”  Except I did not say phone.  I said pants.  Which was absurd because I was wearing my pants.  I was in the living room for goodness sake.  I was totally wearing my pants!  But apparently I could not find them?

Anyway, that’s about all I’ve got.  Maybe later today I’ll say something else absurd and have to edit this.  Only time will tell.
