Special Torture (or how to grin and bear it)

Things my mom can’t remember :

What happened 5 minutes ago.

That her sister is dying.

That there is a global pandemic.

The year, month, day of the week.

I want all of this to seem shocking and unreasonable, but the truth is it’s totally mundane. Millions of people in this country alone can’t remember simple or profound things of this nature. It blows my mind over and over, but then it doesn’t. Then it’s perfectly par for the shitty course.
