Vocab Friday: Stupide

Our vocab lesson is going to be short and sweet today because I am not sure my brain can handle much else. Folks, I am really dumb these days. Case in point: I showed up for my Monday doctor’s appointment on Wednesday.

Even worse: A friend was arriving yesterday from Dubai at 7:30. So I woke up early, ate some breakfast, and waited for a text to say he landed safely. By 8:30 I still hadn’t heard anything and started getting worried. By 9 I was sending texts and emails saying things like “Where are you?! Are you alive?!” At 9:15 I decided to check the flights coming into Charles de Gaulle, and was shocked to see that there were no flights from Dubai arriving at 7:30am.

Even worser: Instead of immediately realizing that my friend meant 7:30 PM, I sat there for a moment thinking oh my god, he’s been kidnapped! Covert kidnap operation! There is no plane from Dubai!!!!

Kids, this is your brain on prenatal vitamins. Consider yourselves warned.

    You’re sooo much quicker than I am to accept that you made a mistake! When I got the day of my 30th birthday wrong, I made up every excuse in the book not to be stupide. Time zones! 24 hour clock! Google Translate! METRIC SYSTEM!

    But alas, I’m not only stupide, I’m also vieux. V-yuck.
