Writing 101 – Day 13 Serially Found

Losing something is usually disturbing, sometimes painful, and at other times, downright devastating.

Often we don't realize how valuable something is until we lose it. That happens to a lot of people.

That happened to me. Seems odd that I can tell you what I lost in 4 words but it takes a lot more words to tell you that I lost something and that it was devastating to lose.


I. Lost. My. Brain

Yep! I said it. I … lost … my … brain.
But this post is not about what I lost. It is about what I found.

I. Found. A. New. Brain. Or better, I. GOT. A. NEW. BRAIN.

But, it wasn't easy! In fact, it was hard, very hard.
Actually, I didn't really find it at all. I had a transplant. Well.. sort of. I know what you're thinking.. they DO NOT TRANSPLANT BRAINS! But that's not true. They do! The catch is, you have to try them on just like you try on hats. I tried a new brain out every few years or so until I finally got one that fit me perfect.

The first brain I tried on was this, “Wild Thing.” That brain liked to have fun. It liked to party! That brain wore me out! Finally, I had to take that brain back because I couldn't take it any more.

The second brain I tried out was a very broken brain. That brain kept breaking and had me going in and out of the hospitals, doctors, and the funny farm. I finally said, “I've had enough of this!” So I took that brain back.

The third brain I tried out was, “I like alcohol” brain. That brain got me into so
much trouble that I could NOT WAIT to take that brain back!

Let me explain, sometimes between trying out these brains, I didn't have a brain at all. I can't tell you what happened during those times, well because, I didn't have a brain.

One day while I was wandering around like a zombie because I was brainless, my Heavenly Father took a hold of my hand and said,

“Priceless, I have a brain that is just right for you.”

He took my face in His wonderful and magnificent hands, touched the top of my
head, and said, YOU NOW HAVE A NEW BRAIN! (My forever brain). I jumped for JOY!

I can't even begin to describe to you how wonderful it was to have a new brain that was indeed, the right brain for me.


It is this new brain that causes me to try and help people around me. I do it because I want everyone to be successful. In fact, your success is even more important to me, than mine. So, if I have hurt your feelings. Please forgive me.

It's because of this new brain.

The End

  1. I must say I enjoy reading your posts because you always approach a task from a different and occasionally puzzling way. It causes people to think and realize that maybe this has also happened to them. Thanks

    • That’s funny! Just today my friend was telling me that her mother use to tell her, “If you had a brain, you’d take it out and play with it!” LOL! Thank you for reading and commenting.

  2. I like how you infuse humor into a very unfunny topic. I like the way you look at things. I’m sure in time, you will get used to your new brain an it will fit like a glove! Either way, your new brain seems to suit you. I think with a little tweaking, this would make a terrific poem.
    Enjoyable reading.

    • Thank you Victoria! Actually, it isn’t a poem, maybe I should not have done the centering thing. It was my attempt at making a “humorous” post because I was so tired of reading and writing! It was a lame attempt, but I had fun anyway.

      • Oh no I totally get what you were doing and it was effective and humorous. It wasn’t a lame attempt at all.

        What I was suggesting, and not very clearly I see, was that it COULD be a poem with a few minor adjustments. But it is fine as it is. ~victoria

  3. I like how you were able to scratch the surface of some serious depths and let the reader go as deep as he wanted. The sort-of echo Victoria, I think this could be massaged into a children’s book. No kidding…

    • Thank you! I had fun writing that one. My brain was in “brain drain” and I was exhausted from all the reading, commenting and writing. So, thank you for letting me know I didnt’ drop the ball. LOL!

  4. Behind on my reading so just read this. I believe we may be related as I to received a new brain and I think it was from the same donor.
    I so agree with Jim Woods, your writing makes people think and is amusing yet thought provoking at the same time.

I would love to read your thoughts...
