Wide Eyed and Mushy Brained

wide eyed
The mushy brain image was too disgusting to contemplate...

So, the thing is, I am meant to be working. I’ve got a heap of  forms to fill in, elbow deep on  my desk. They all require adept handling of numbers and balancing of figures – a substantial part of my job. Should be a pushover right?

Wrong,  here’s the weird thing,   whenever I look at these particular  forms my usually lucid and moderately intelligent brain, fogs over. The gap between my ears fills with cotton wool and I can  feel my brain liquify. My eyes start to bulge and I give serious consideration to carving the front of my head off. Is this normal – is it an allergy – do other people have Mushy Brain Syndrome?

Let’s all sit in a circle and share, what gives you MBS?

  1. anything that involves numbers or official forms (like tax returns) will turn my brain to slush. There is only one solution. Delegate.

  2. Yep, I suffer from permanent MBS. I’ve had it since pregnancy ate my brain twenty years ago.

    Website design – especially when my talented No. 3 son shows me at the speed of light and then asks me to have a go.
    In front of .
    Him.

    It’s either MBS or blank terror.

  4. trying to write straight onto a computer – anything from gossipy e-mails to book reviews. end up resorting to notes on scraps of paper to copy up later.

    I am in a permanent state of MBS, made worse by numbers and marking. I find writing to be the only cure…oh and Pimms…

    Feedback forms – I feel my brain leaking from my head at the first scale of 1 to 10. How can we improve our event? I don’t know… I need a lot more time to think about it to give a reasoned suggestion. Perhaps I take forms too seriously?
