Guys. It’s been a weird evening.

First I saw this FB status and laughed harder than I have in months, nay, years.


It’s weird how much I laughed.

Then I laid down for a five-minute nap and dreamed about dead frogs floating in a pond. Sign of the end times?

Then I woke up to discover that I could feel my face very acutely. Like, suddenly I have all these extra sensations in my face. I don’t know how to describe it to someone who has never woken up to this experience. My blinks are extra tender. I can feel my eyes in their sockets. I can feel the weight of my brain.

I did not know what to do with these extra face feelings, so I rocked back and forth on the floor with my head in my hands, laughing. “My blinks are so tender!” I shouted to Doug in the other room. “I can feel my whole face!”

He walked in and watched for a while. “What are you?” he asked. “A liberal?”

This is a joke of ours. Its what my dad asks me whenever I say I don’t want to work for a big corporation, or that there is good in all of us, or that time I suggested there are an infinite number of ways to draw meaning from this life, or when I eat hummus.

Then Doug wondered aloud if someone had slipped me a pot brownie.

I don’t think so. But I did dodge a wet cracker today. I got an e-mail that there were treats in the break room so I went in and picked up a cracker and it was wet. I had to throw it away in front of the person who had brought them and walk right back out. What else is there to do in a wet cracker situation? I wasn’t prepared for it.

Okay. I’m going to go enjoy this face while it lasts.

Anyone else ever felt their brain?
