Sick Hallucinations?

7 Jan

I was so ill for part of last week, that I don’t even remember half of what happened. There are traces of things though–I went to the store at some point and bought earphones and apparently I almost set a pair of my gloves on fire.

Gloves

My favorite part was an email I just found in my drafts to someone named Alexandra Livingston. This is funny because I don’t know anyone named Alexandra Livingston. This was the email:

__________________________

Dear Alexandra Livingston:

__________________________

I checked my deleted items and spam and I did not receive something from her first. I wonder what I was going to tell this imaginary person? Or ask her? Are any of you Alexandra Livingston? This reminds me of the time I had surgery and the medicine they put me on made me hallucinate that I had parakeet named Carol.

Have you ever had a funny hallucination while sick or on meds?

    Hilarious, La La. Are you feeling better. I’m worried about you. I don’t know an Alexandra Livingston. Perhaps, she is someone from your past. Once when I had a really high fever, I hallucinated about something. It was intense whatever it was.

    Dearest La La (la la la la la),
    You hallucinated quite a bit last week. You claimed to even have a Twitter conversation with a Stormtrooper. Sure, we believe you.

    Glad you’re feeling better.

          You have ears in there? Crazy. And yes, a gal like me needs almost unattainable standards. You should see what turns up on my doorstep otherwise. Literally.

            Of course I have ears. There are also audio aids built into the helmet, of course.

            Also, I did not “turn up” on your door step. We met through mutual friends. Or something.

            Curiously, what kind of gal are you?

    Maybe that was the drunk e-mail you were going to send to me, but decided I needed a more respectable name. I often get drunk and write down post ideas. One morning when I opened up my notebook where I write such ideas, I had written, “figpin”. That is it. I still do not know what it means.
