Hour or more simply forgotten.
Apparently watched TV and conversed with kids,
while snacking on Italian Ice, they thought I was alert.
When all of a sudden, my words and actions were slurred.
They couldn't understand a thing I was saying,
and noticed when standing that I was weak and unstable.
Kids told me the following morning that they had been worried,
especially when they witnessed me weak, confused, and jittery.
My daughters had called my son in to help,
scared that I'd fall since I wouldn't stay in chair as instructed.
The following morning
I tried to reflect on the night prior,
How could I be present and semi-normal with my kids,
while having no recollection of the evening at all?
