A Conversation Between My Cognitive brain And My Intuitive Brain During A Migraine Cluster

The players: Cognitive Brain – henceforth known as ‘CB’, and Intuitive Brain, aka ‘IB’

IB: “I want a cup of tea. We’ll feel better with a cuppa tea.”

CB: “Yep, OK, um, how do we do that?”

IB: “Do what?”

CB: “The tea thing.”

IB: (already moving on to laying down and staying as still as possible) “Tea? Are you making tea? Great idea. We’ll feel better with a cuppa tea.”

CB: (being careful to not move too fast, slowly looks around the kitchen where it has spent many happy hours over the last eight years and usually knows where everything is and is fairly certain it’s made thousands of cups of tea) “Yeah, but how do we do that?”

IB: (sighing pointedly from the chaise lounge where it has swooningly retired) “Never mind. Just a glass of water.”

CB: (still standing, rather wobbly, in the center of the kitchen, trying to recreate the steps required to get a glass of water, stumbles upon the most vital question of all) “Where are the glasses?”

As I was writing this one of my favourite pieces of classical music happened to be playing in the background. I can only tolerate low-key (pun unintended) orchestral pieces in this state … enjoy.
