Do Spies Get Brain Plaque?

You know how travel can be so stressful to the system, especially to a spy and a writer. Can you imagine if you have to reach a certain destination at a certain time to pick up the top secret package and you fail to do so because there was a flight delay? That would happen to me.

I would never make it as a super spy because of my propensity for attracting odd incidences on planes. Like the time when the plane to Atlanta got zapped by lightning in a huge thunderstorm and the plane had to be diverted to land in Athens, Georgia, an inky dink perfect spy airport ;-). I could, of course, wrestle my way to the cockpit, if I were Super Jack, and threaten to kill off anyone who stops me if the pilot doesn't land where I tell him, but boy, I wouldn't get off as lightly as Super Jack, who'd probably just face demotion, or something.

On my trip to St. Louis, I met an interesting woman. As far as I could understand the job description, she's a dental person who flies around giving talks about how to handle sensitive cases in a dental office, like say, an obvious abuse case. She teaches/trains personnel to divert the husband's attention so they can get the abused woman alone, etc.

Anyway, our conversation went to Alzheimer patients for some reason. She told me the main theory about deterioration of the brain comes from years of stress that a person suffers. The brain basically forms PLAQUE and its healthy parts are destroyed, just like teeth problems.

Oh-oh. I immediately start to think of all the plaque that's squishing my brain right now ;-) since I lead a pretty hectic stress-filled life. But man, can you imagine Super Jack's plague? Poor guy is going to get Alzheimer if he doesn't stop saving the world! (It's that sacrifice theme again) I'm going to have to yell at RB when I get home, "Stop stressing me out! You're giving me Brain Plaque!" The dental-advisor was chuckling when I told her she could threaten her grandchildren that way too when they start to get antsy and screamy: "Stop it, you're giving grandma brain plaque!"

Uber-writer to editor: "Stop these deadlines! I'm getting brain plaque!" or "Tell Marketing their horrible titles are giving me brain plaque!"

Will they listen?

Life's short. Avoid plaque like the plague ;-).



Bear with me while I learn. The first button likes the POST. The second button likes the BLOG site. Please help me by "liking" me. Thanks!

Do you get brain plaque from too much partying at RT? Heh. Hope you're having a good time, Gennita!
