I’ve discovered the cause of Alzheimer’s. Chronic conversations with idiots.
It’s one meaningless complaint after another, compounded, until our brain finally gives up and says “that’s it, I just can’t listen anymore. Since you won’t leave, I will.”
Maybe we should define idiot. Anyone who will selfishly steal the time of another to complain, gossip, condemn, or just generally speak while forgetting how truly lucky they are: Idiot.
Can’t you feel it? The mental suicide you’re committing by standing there smiling and nodding your head, acting nice and tolerable – fake. When a conversation makes you hold your breath just before it happens. When you have to say, “I guess that wasn’t so bad,” when it’s over, it’s more than annoying. It’s expensive. A price we pay with our sanity.
It really is cute that you fancy yourself approachable and caring. I’m sure you’ll be a 45-year-old hit at the nursing home. But you’re already confused if you think you’re helping some people. Allowing mind numbing justifications to go on right in front of you has never helped anyone in the history of the world.
Alzheimer’s is the natural human defense against a world of douche bags. It’s death before dying and it starts by entertaining people we should be walking away from.
It’s trading endearing interactions for obnoxious situations. It’s two people telling lies to one another. One thinks what they have to say actually matters, while the other lies by just standing there, listening.
Stop lying. Start living.
