May 11th

Brain Image - SWThe other day, I made some travel arrangements.  Yep, this girl is going on vacation- woot! woot!  I booked a hotel.  “I’d like to check out on May 11th,” I said to the reservations person.

May 11th.  May 11th? When I said it out loud I wondered, why is this date so significant?  It is not Memorial day.  Is there another May holiday?  I could not make sense of it.  Which, by the way, makes me feel like I MUST have active brain tumors that are affecting my cognizance.

Hours and hours went by.  Eventually, May 11th came back into my mind.  Holy crap.  I remembered.  May 11th was the day of my lung cancer diagnosis.

I forgot.  I honestly forgot.  Brain tumor or not, I like forgetting things like cancer details.

    Well at least your selective memory is working for you in this case! And who knows… Maybe it’s your world-class optimism that blocked such an icky date and not one of those tumors after all..

    Can’t wait to hear about the vacation plans!

      It really was so cool to forget it! I got a great, full belly, laugh out of it. Laughs like that don’t come around all that often.

      Vacations are delightful! I wish I could afford to take more of them. Darn cancer for sucking up the money!
