Further evidence that I'm not very well... [Oct. 20th, 2007|07:41 pm]
Douglas Spencer
Cognitive function is dimished during illness.

Evidence:

Earlier today, in Friend One's journal, Friend Two suggested that Friend One had been absent-mindedly sucking her pens.

Which I misread as "penis"... and it took me several seconds, not only to realise that this was wrong, but also to realise why it had to be wrong.

And just now, in a scrabble game, Friend Three has played "faceting".

Which I misread as "facesitting", and I was confused because I know that "facesitting" isn't in the SOWPODS dictionary (it would have to be hyphenated, which isn't allowed).

They say these things come in threes (fnarr) so I'm trying to stay alert.

Friend Three says, perhaps you should re-read your first sentence.

Ah.

And I'd already gone back to correct "cognitive".

I think I'll have an early night. Again.

This isn't a sign of illness. I hope not. Because there are least three of us who mis read the pen incident.

Hmm. reading "penis" for "pens," and "face-sitting" for "faceting."
Sounds to me like your mind is on something else, *wink-wink* say no more...
