Like most of us I have struggled with some friends and family thinking "You look ok? where's the problem?" and why can't you go back to work. Well last night the penny finally dropped with a friend and ex work colleague.
We were talking about the forthcoming and 6N rugby and the usual banter between my English friend and myself being Welsh. The conversation drifted towards the new England captain Dylan Hartley and his poor discipline record. I mentioned about the similarity and differences between him, Lawrence Dallaglio and Martin Johnson. Then went on to say something about Clive Woodward and ..... couldn't remember Martin Johnson's name even though I had mentioned it in the previous sentence.
There was an awkward silence form my friend and quizzically asked "you can't remember what you just said?" There was complete amazement from my friend whom couldn't understand how i knew something a minute ago and then it was gone.
He was physically shocked and almost distressed when he realised the problems we get, especially over something so trivial. After many, many questions from my friends he must have taken about 30 minutes to recover.
At least one thing there is another convert in terms of understanding
