My wife put this video on my FB timeline with the caption “This is exactly like having a conversation with you.”
I responded with “I’m pretty sure this is nothing like me”.
Then that reminded me that I needed to complete my annual GAT (Global Assessment Tool). No. Not random. The GAT is a mandatory survey that asks like a million questions six different ways and you have to answer on a scale consisting of differing degrees of like me-ness. It’s something like this:
Question 401,693: I am easily distracted.
Then I have to answer with “nothing like me”, “somewhat like me”, or “this is so totally like me”. See? Connected rather than randomized. It’s all connected. Kind of like all those Disney movies making reference to one another. Just because I am thinking about Tarzan’s parents doesn’t mean that your convo on Frozen isn’t the same conversation.
Boom. Diagnosis refuted! It’s like magic how I can do that.
Take that, Doc! I’m a wizard!
