NORMAN — It must come as quite a shock to those who look down their noses on “regular folk” that everyone, including them, at one time or another experiences “brain fog.”
This does not necessarily mean those in the foggy state are dumber or lower on the social ladder than the haughty ones. It simply means some folks do not mind admitting to an occasional attack of brain fog. The good news is most people recognize the brain fog condition when it descends upon them, and are comforted by the knowledge that it is usually temporary.
Mind you, the “Schnoz im augen” types actually believe they are above most things which affect humankind. Do you know why they believe such drivel? The answer my friend is they think they are above such things. Hence, their permanent homes are located in brain fog land. Delusion is a wonderful thing, if it happens to someone other than you.
What? You do not know the phrase “Schnoz im augen”? Schnoz means nose and augen means eyes. Translation: Nose in the eyes. Loose interpretation: Some folks are so uppity that they poke themselves in the eye with the supercilious and prominent proboscis above their lips.
Now, let us explore the condition or state of being in brain fog.
Say you are driving to work, as you do every morning or afternoon depending on how high up the food chain you happen to be. There are extraordinarily long lines of cars on roads which are usually free from congestion. Then that forehead slapper moment comes along. School is back in session.
After creeping along at slower than inch worm speed, you finally arrive at work, probably late. Depending on the speed of your personal engagement mode, at some point you start the day performing the tasks at hand. But there is something wrong. Something about the day, you, or both, is off.
