I’ve got a problem

I have always prided myself on my phenomenal memory – just a shade off of being eidetic. Lately my memory is playing tricks on me – just today I mis-remembered the date of my husband’s last physical. I insisted it was in August. I was wrong. It was in February.  There is a reason I got this wrong, not going to explain it but it troubles me that I did it.

Anyway –

Last night, I dreamt about writing a blog post about language and words and became semi-conscious and was about to get up to research the topic when I fell back to sleep. I also dreamt about writing about the essential self and in the light of day I can’t remember whether I was in a deep sleep or semiconscious – also, my father was in my dreams last night but I don’t think he was my father – just someone who looked like my father…I was very confused this morning.

It’s always interesting to note how the brain makes connections. I was making lunch today and opened a new bottle of BBQ sauce. I used the sauce, put the bottle in the fridge and then I thought “Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce – sounds like that song Sweet Baby James by that guy I don’t like who was married to Carly Simon who I don’t like either. Isn’t it funny what things can remind you of others things, and that they are things you don’t like”

Then something made me pause – and I thought “Wait, the bbq sauce isn’t called Sweet Baby Ray’s, is it?” So I checked the bottle – nope, the bbq sauce is just Ray’s. No sweet, no baby. Just Ray’s. But – under the name was “no sugar added”.

Here’s the thing tho – there IS a bbq sauce called Sweet Baby Ray’s– what I have is the sugar free version of that bbq sauce called simply Ray’s ’cause it’s NOT sweet.

You get old enough and there is just too much shit in your head and everything runs together and sometimes it feels like it all just happened yesterday and every day is Sunday.

    1. James Taylor and Carly Simon were considered folk singers? Did not know that. I didn’t consider them anything except unlistenable (Is that a word?)


  1. yes, james taylor was sort of considered “folk” because there was no other place to put his type of music. it wasnt really rock. it really wasnt country. and both are good music. lol .

    1. No freakin’ way is James Taylor anywhere near country! No way nuh-uh. I just looked him up and a quick scan shows he is somehow in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame(?) He is kinda like Perry Como pop music except Perry Como had a way better voice.


  2. I thought JT’s music style was more along the lines of the soft folk genre? It matters not to me, l didn’t like his genre whatever style it was. He just struck me as a smarmy clucker.

    I have days like the ones you describe Grace – l have sometimes daytime hallucinations as well or l think l am hallucinating but then l am snoring when l am awake it’s all quite baffling.

    1. I’ve never heard of soft folk – soft rock, sure (and isn’t that an oxymoron?) Folk music is soft isn’t it? Except for all the female folk singers with high pitched squeaky voices (Oh, my bleeding ears!).
