    LOL...thats sooo funny!

    The doctor rx'd Cory some prescription strength Aleve and he asked me what it was and I told him it was for pain from inflammation in his joints. (this was about two years ago) Ever since he has called Aleve his Inflammatory medication. LOL. He still doesnt get it when we laugh. Now we call all NSAIDs "inflammatory medications"

    How interesting.
    We were discussing this just the other day...
    Not at a level where its actually a disability, but... K2 used what I considered an "inappropriate term" for this event (word recall failure... getting "no word" or "wrong word" back on brain search...), so we talked about what this really is, when people struggle with it on a daily basis: dysnomia. Its a learning disability, like dyscalcula, dyslexia, dysgraphia, etc....

    It is either frustrating, or hilarious - or both.
    If the person with the disability has a sense of humour, it really helps!

    I find the substitution of words hilarious... husband does it a LOT...
