And this is why I have never been and never will become a public speaker.
Today, as part of my Medicare wellness exam, I was asked by the doctor to name as many animals as I could in one minute. OK, go. Dog, cat, gerbil, hamster, um, snake, think zoo elephant, giraffe, lion, um, hippo, alligator, um, is the minute up yet? Um.
Did I think to think of farm animals? Horse, cow, pig, chicken, alpaca, sheep, goat? Did I remember we’ve just spent time in Alaska? Moose, elk, bear? Animals in other countries? Kangaroo, koala? Maybe the alphabet…aardvark, baboon, cheetah, dolphin? Nope. I just shut down and waited for the clock to run out.
So today I’m thankful Providence can’t deny me health insurance on account of brain freeze.
