So yesterday, I went to Healthy Options for my healthy snacks + power bars and gels supply, when I decided to finally pick up a bottle of GINKGO BILOBA which, as some of you might know, is supposed to improve circulation to the brain, prevent tissues from getting damaged, and support memory function. You see, for years now, I had been complaining of diminished memory. When I was little – at 5’1, I still am ‘little’ – I could memorize a 3-page declamation piece, for example, in one day. At the age of four, I memorized Jose Rizal’s famous ‘Mi Ultimo Adios’ – yes, in Spanish – and would recite it every chance I get to score money from my Mom’s weekend mahjong classmates. In a way, you could say I was a precocious little mutt. Fast forward to today, well, let’s just say things have changed. Drastically. I’m still super smart and all but something really has to be done about my memory. Have I mentioned I’m super smart? Oh, only about a few times ya? LOL.
Hence, GINKGO BILOBA. So finally, at around 7:30 last night, I clocked out of the office to see my Victory Wednesday group at the mall. As is always the case, we had a great night of sharing before Ro closed it with a prayer. I passed by NafNaf just before the shop closed as I needed a cheap swimsuit for my weekend trip. When I got home, there was a sense of foreboding I couldn’t quite shake off. As though I had forgotten something.
My Healthy Options bag with my Ginkgo Biloba and healthy snacks! To top it all off, I couldn’t even remember where I left it! Did I leave it in the atm booth? How about at the coffee shop where I met the girls? NafNaf? Where?!?
After racking my brain for hours, retracing my steps, and trying to figure out where exactly I left the bag, I was already up to my elbows in frustration and I still couldn’t remember anything! I remember everything else that happened that day except that part about my Ginkgo Biloba.
I woke up this morning and one of the first three things that popped into my head was, you guessed it right, Ginkgo Biloba! Me and my Ginkgo obsession! It was so bad that even while doing INSANITY Cardio Recovery, my thoughts would still get interrupted by Ginkgo.
Then I went to work. Guess what was the first thing I noticed sitting prettily on top of my table?
To cut the long story short: I bought a bottle of memory enhancers which I had completely forgotten where I left last night.
Moral of the story: Somebody needs to OD on Gingko Biloba and that would be me.
I exaggerate, of course. I did, however, open the bottle immediately and swallowed two capsules. One can’t be too forgetful these days.
