Hmm… 10, December 2009

Well, on a completely different note to the short story, here’s a splendid piece of BC cackery which took place, this week, in one of the few moments I wasn’t looking for my keys.

I have laberinthitis at the moment (no idea how to spell that) which just means you’ve a problem in your inner ear, too many bogies or a tiny particle in the jelly contained in your centre for balance.  The result is that some days, especially when you are getting over a cold or the like, you can feel a bit sick.

It’s not really something you can treat, in itself, but they do treat the symptoms.  I have some pills I take when it’s really dire but for the most part, I use travel sickness bands – two elasticated things with a bead which you wear round your wrist with the bead pressing the pressure point which relieves sickness.  If you respond to acupuncture they work quite well.

Naturally, when I bath junior, unless I want to wear two damp woolly things round my wrists, I am compelled to take them off.

Last night, people coming round, feeling dizzy, I fish around in my pocket and find… aaargh!  Only one.


That means the other is wrapped in the paper hankies I just threw out… and they’re in the bin… in the kitchen… with old food scrapings and… am I going to fish it out and wash it?  Sure I am.

I gingerly probe the bin.



Never mind, I will wear the one I have… hmm… but which wrist?  I hold my hands up to look and find… yes… I am already wearing the other one.

I have searched the bin for nothing.

I must have started to put them on after junior’s bath and got distracted by something.

I swear I gave birth to my brain with this baby but I did think it might come back.

Hope is fading.

I tried to get in the bath before I’d run it the other day

Poor BC! I’m sure having to concentrate on the effects of labrynthitis (I had to look it up) has a little something to do with the “misplaced” band. I hope you get over your condition soon.
