“We are cursed with the tendency to overthink things which can result in negative thoughts that we not only replay in our minds, but also share with other people – to their chagrin.”
A recent 12 hour span was a challenge.
It came upon me innocently during a broadcast of Wheel of Fortune. There I was, a striking figure of repose in my recliner, trying to solve the puzzle when suddenly my brain sent signals of impending disaster. I mean it was that quick. And I knew exactly what was required. I had to move fast. Real fast.
I did not make it. I failed the test. Miserably.
And it did not end. The scenario repeated roughly every 2 hours until the dawn.
I struggled out of bed weak and exhausted. Finally an end to the ordeal.
My advice to you is never, ever mix prunes with a laxative.
