You watch 4 hours of Parliament Question time because the remote control is on the television set. You lay awake all day wishing you could sleep because you're so tired, and you lay awake all night wishing you could get up. You watch the telephone as it rings, and you know you could manage to pick it up, but you forget what comes next. You are having a conversation with someone and half way through you have to ask them to remind you what you're talking about. You don't drive, but carry your driver's licence to remind yourself of what your name is. You're walking through a busy shopping center and somebody slightly familiar is walking towards you. As you desperately search for a name, you get close enought to realize you're walking towards a mirror.
