Rather than have “inexplicable” be inexplicable, here’s a definition:
unable to be explained or accounted for.
“for some inexplicable reason her mind went completely blank”
synonyms: unaccountable, unexplainable, incomprehensible, unfathomable, impenetrable, insoluble
For some inexplicable reason, my mind never seems to go completely blank.
Yesterday morning, I inexplicably said to a team of doctors that came to my hospital room:
People seem to find my getting pneumonia inexplicable. What should I say to somebody who asks, “How did you pick this up?”
The head resident inexplicably smiled, paused, and then responded.
Tell them, “I got it from you.”
That response is inexplicable, unless you realize that he was kidding.
Yesterday, I inexplicably had an almost completely positive day at Boston’s Tufts Medical Center, where I’ve been hospitalized since Sunday, as follows:
- they got me off I.V. antibiotics and onto oral ones,
- I stopped wearing any sort of oxygen support,
- I did many laps around the hospital unit, and
- several of the doctors mentioned the possibility that I might be going home today.
My happiness at the end of the day is probably not inexplicable.
Then, one of the nurses woke me up in the middle of the night to tell me that my oxygen levels had inexplicably gone down while I was sleeping. No matter what position I got into, the oxygen levels remained inexplicably insufficient. As I am writing this inexplicable post, I am back on oxygen support.
Will this inexplicable drop in my oxygen levels affect my chances of going home today?
Your inexplicable guess is as good as mine.
Are any of my photos from yesterday inexplicable?
If any of those images are inexplicable, let me know and I shall explain.
Honestly, if there are no comments on this post, I shall find that inexplicable.
Explicable thanks to all who helped me create this inexplicable post and to you — of course! — for reading it.
