This sounds like the lead up to a joke I heard about Alzheimer's and Parkinson's but my memory is a little shaky

Shouldn't the headline end with fb- is the father, or is that something that subby's mind has worked tirelessly to forget since discovering the truth?

Since I prefer to reward results rather than effort, you aren't even getting a participation trophy, brain.

Case in point--got a text alert from my bank that a very large check cleared our account.  Alarmed, and wanting to know what in the sam hell that check was and who wrote it (wife and I share one account), I log into the bank's site around midnight, call up the check image, and...ummm....

This was the check I wrote to the IRS to pay our taxes for this year.  That I wrote...on..Monday.  The one that I had to move funds from savings to cover on Monday.  Precisely none of that occurred to me last night when that alert came in.  Thank you brain.  I do love the adrenaline boost at midnight for nothing.
