I wanted to share with you all this kind of awesome comeback that I had the other day. (yeah, I'm kind of proud of myself, so what?)
Have you all noticed that when you have an illness or disease like, oh I don't know, MS and you tell someone and you see that moment when it hits them that they have no idea what to say to you now? Then this switch flips and it's like "I must throw as many analogies at her as possible" and then you're hit with all of these sentences that make no sense and half don't even pertain to you? Well, this is one I had the other day.
Random Mom at Kids School: Oh, MS huh? Wow. Well, I guess that Forrest Gump was right. Life really is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get.
Me: Well, I mean, I guess if the box of chocolates was the kind filled with the gross goo inside and you knew that every one you bit in to was going to be disgusting and you'll want to put it back in the box but you totally can't, then yeah it's a lot like what I'm going through with MS.
