Amphibians

King Frog / Wellcome Images Here are some words that I said right after my stroke.

What I was trying to say: outpatient What I actually said: amphibian

What I was trying to say: surgery What I actually said: veterans

What I was trying to say: Dilantin (my seizure medication) What I actually said: golub jamun (Indian donut)

If the words coming out of your mouth are not what you intend, who's talking?
