The Lighter Side of Catastrophe, cont.
I'm standing next to my husband, explaining to a friend how stressful it is on us from the long-taking work on our house from May's storm.
"We constantly make word substitutions, or revert to pointing at something in order to communicate," I said. "Our brains are mush."
"Yes," agreed my husband. "And forgetful, too. Just this morning, I forgot my binoculars."
We looked at each other and cracked up laughing. We both KNEW he'd meant to say glasses. We're praying our friends and acquaintances will understand, and hopefully, whenever our house gets fixed, we'll go back to a new normal.
