From the sublime to the ridiculous

The night before last I woke up at 4am (and I'm sure lots of you know that feeling), lay awake for half an hour and then, feeling very bored, got up and went downstairs.  Ash came to find me about an hour later so we had a cup of tea and then fell back to sleep all of which will sound normal to some of you and very boring to others.  Where's the humour or interest in any of that I hear you ask.  Well the interest came this morning when we woke up at a normal time and the first thing Ash said was 'did you sleep better last night?'  I was astounded not only that he'd remembered but also that he was interested when how I'm feeling is very low on his list of priorities nowadays.  So that was the sublime, the ridiculous came a little while later (and in more ways than one) when we were listening to the news and there was talk of Boris, Brexit and the workings, or not, of parliament.  Ash suddenly said 'what are they talking about?'  'Brexit' was my reply.  'What's that then?' he asked and I was left thinking that in certain circumstances having dementia isn't a bad thing after all.
