I'm a big Tolkien fan. I watched the new Hobbit movie last weekend and loved it. My favorite scene is the one in which Bilbo and Gollum play a game of riddles. For enormous stakes.
It made me think of a riddle that I'd really like someone to answer for me. It goes like this:
Why is it that last week, on the same day, within the same hour, my brain did a very weird thing: I went online to review my understanding of plasma electrophoresis. This is not to insinuate that I actually do understand it.....but I recognized enough words and grasped a kinda-sorta overall big picture of what was going on in the article.
So I pushed myself away from the computer while kinda sorta congratulating myself on whatever kinda sorta concept that I was able to resurrect from my brain.
After I mentally patted myself on the back, I wandered into the dining room and sat down at the jigsaw puzzle set up on the table, confident that the task of putting various Santa pieces together would be elementary compared to trying to decipher the various types of gammopathy.
Suddenly, as I looked at the pieces of the puzzle, I had a complete loss of any perception as to what I should do with all those brightly colored pieces. Zip. Blanked. Nada. I actually broke out in a sweat as I sat there and my mind churned furiously in a panic. I finally gave up and retreated to my bedroom, threw on my jammies, slid into bed, and fumed.
So not fair. So weird. So........puzzling.
