I agree with you. But I abbreviated my telling of the whole episode here at DC. Believe me, he had plenty of tutelage because his wife and a friend who was there also tried and tried to explain it to him. It was almost funny because no matter how it was explained he got hung up on the word 'spoons'.
Maybe it had something to do with the Red Bull he drank followed by a very large Martini!
I really don't carry spoons around with me which is what I think he envisioned. Oh, now I'm off laughing again!
See--- a person CAN have fun even while suffering pain and all the other loverly things that come with a chronic illness. TeeHee!
Maybe you'll excuse him because he was 'over the limit'. That's o.k. But today he'll be sober and his wife will sit him down and explain it all again.
