You just might have Parkinson's if.......................

Along with the rigidity, Bradykinesia, etc....... You also have a lot of Tremors, and you're pretty "shaken" up about it....................

you wore your facial mask, to the Halloween party over the weekend.........

 

dressed as a Zombie, or Frankenstein's monster for Halloween so you could use both the "mask", and the Parkie shuffle.........

 

ok next ones are rated NC17 (not for kids eyes)

 

smiled at the young woman at the party, and told her that you could make her a very "happy girl", with the tremor in your hand........... :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:

 

went to the Halloween as a sex toy, and told everyone........ (wait for it)........ that you've become.......(drum roll please)..... a human vibrator............ :razz:  :mrgreen:  :razz:

 

Ok, time for me to go to bed..... I'm getting a bit weird..............(an he wanders away with a maniacal grin on his face)........... :mrgreen:  :mrgreen: :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:

Your wife (or husband) won't send you to the store for cream, because every time she does, by the time you've carried it home? it's butter...................

Our Rock Steady Boxing group had a pot luck last night.  My wife couldn't figure out the rhym or reason to some dishes.

 

I smiled, TEXTURE.   A lot of the food isn't so much about taste or smell anymore, but a blend of things that have a unique texture.

 

Also seemed most of us no longer had a sweet tooth, yet a few other spouses commented it seemed like it had increased.  I'll fess up

to still loving a small bowl of ice cream. Just so soothing on my thoat. Cold creamy delight.
