Brains intrigue me.
They are "plastic"
and they have the ability
to learn or re-learn
or even shift their
if another area
has been injured.
And yet some brain injuries
do not heal
as expected.
Expectations regarding
the healing of brain tissue
are never clear
or concise.
Bones heal in a precise
time period.
Skin and organs
with the proper treatments
heal on a certain schedule.
Brains do not.

I think about this;
as J drinks a beer and
makes chocolate chip cookies,
and I read a book about
brain surgeons,
while I sample
the cookie dough.

Lucky Charms

Food I still carry with me from my childhood;
Lucky Charms
Cocoa Puffs
Creamed Chipped Beef on Toast
Frozen Snickers
Dr. Pepper or Mountain Dew
Macaroni & Cheese from a Box
Bologna Sandwiches
Hot Dogs with Ketchup Only
Cheeseburgers with Ketchup Only
Sliced Peaches in Cream
Rice Pudding
Canned Corned Beef.

It is the
Canned Corned Beef
which surprises me the most.

St. Patrick's Day
is soon
and I am thinking about
Canned Corn Beef
Lucky Charms.
(But not all at the same time).
