So I was sitting in the student lounge in school yesterday, and one of the advisors comes out of her office to refill her cup of water for the fourth or fifth time that day (it was a 12-oz plastic cup). One of the other students commented on it and she said that she'd been really, really thirsty the past couple of days, like the kind of unimaginable thirsty where it never stops and doesn't get better. She shrugged it off as the unseasonable April heatwave.
Alarm bells went off in my head. And I kept my mouth shut.
And then I was talking to her later, and she mentioned that she'd been SO tired lately, also because of the heat.
And I kept my mouth shut.
I'm sure everyone's mind goes there. How often do you act on it? When do you say something? If it were a good friend, I'd recommend that she let me test her. Other people? I tend to keep quiet. (One exception--the baby of my neighbor's cousin...I said something to his mother. I never found out what happened with it, but she said that it had crossed her mind, too.)
Anyone out there?
