muffinitis, noun: a condition causing an individual to misspeak due to mental fogginess from MS or medication, best treated with kindness and giggles
"Please forgive me if I say something unusual. I'm not a moron - it's just my muffinitis acting up."
And the story: I often experience some brain fog and/or fuzziness from medication. Sometimes, this brings on some aphasia. I have a great deal of trouble recalling the simplest of words, or worse, I will replace one word with a totally unrelated word without even noticing. Although on occasion I find this to be quite upsetting, it usually is cause for much mirth. My family and I had quite a laugh on the day I asked, "Where are my muffins??" I first received puzzled looks in return, as no one was aware that I had any muffins or that any muffins were anywhere on the premises that day. I was upset, because I needed those muffins! I explained that I knew that my niece had taken them from me earlier in the day and I hadn't seen them since. Eventually, we figured out that I was, in fact, looking for my slippers.
Do you ever experience muffinitis?
