I have an affinity for scouting threads of conversations. I noticed this today while talking with Marie and Lynn. A topic of interest was generated, then merged down another path. The original subject almost slipped away, but I was able to pull it back. It's probably not an essential skill. Maybe an annoying trait, say, at a party. It's attaching to the past and resisting conversational progress. Marie had shared her "edibles" with us today. Afterward, my memory was like fog. Thoughts kept floating away like a dream. So weird. Compared with alcohol, there was too much awareness, stressed buzz.
