Then the question comes, "what was I talking about?" "Where was I going with this?"
Oh shit, I was only nodding my head, pretending to listen, and now I have to tell you what you were talking about? *Scramble to remember*
I go through this set of events, almost daily. It's comical, in a way, but also very sad and frustrating.
So, if I start talking and suddenly veer off in another direction, totally unexpected, please shoot me and put me out of your misery. It will be obvious, these last 5 years of exposure to my boss has worn off on me, and I'm as senile as he is.
