File this image of Lilly and Betty under the phrase "A picture is worth a thousand words." A phrase that I thought was from an old Kodak ad -- but when I went in search of a fun link to the vintage print ad I almost remembered -- nope. Instead, I give you confabulation.
Indeed I do.
Confabulation: psychological term for the process of creating fabricated, distorted, or misinterpreted memory. Unlike a lie, confabulation is usually done without intention. Often involves autobiographical details. Seen frequently in patients with alcoholism, aneurism, and/or Alzheimer's.
But enough about that.
Write me a caption for Betty and Lilly as a comment below, and there's a prize in it for at least one participant!
Past prizes have included: Lunch at Yummy House, a copy of Stewart O'Nan's wonderful Emily, Alone, homemade soap. That doesn't mean someone isn't going to win the jar of Flarp! this time, but isn't that just like the world, all full of happy uncertainty?
