It is possible that my brain is functioning at less than full efficiency

Andy (staring at the internet): Apparently bacon works really well when fried.
Jane (completely deadpan): Tell the people.
Andy: continues reading for about five seconds.
Andy: What did I just say?
Jane: Apparently bacon works really well when fried.
Andy: AVOCADO! I MEANT AVOCADO!
Jane: I did think you were running a little bit behind the curve on that one.

This isn't the first time recently that my mouth has become disconnected from what my brain thinks it's saying (or not saying). In York two weeks ago we were wandering past a stuffed toy shop, and Jane asked me if I'd liked a specific purple bear in the window, and I was amazed at how she could have known I was thinking about it, and wanted to know if she'd been looking at my eyeline. And it turned out that I had literally dropped the words "Purple bear" into the middle of a sentence and then carried on talking without noticing that I'd done so.
