The First Senior Moment

This cartoon struck my funny bone (Hat tip to friend Rita for sending it via e-mail.)

I’ve been spending more time looking for things that I’ve misplaced, wondering why I entered a room, and trying to remember the original purpose of an Internet session. My mental lists cannot be too long; more than three items and I’m in trouble.

My loved ones look at me sideways and wonder whether my recent impulsivity is a harbinger of erratic surprises. No, I’m simply compensating for worsening memory and have to act immediately before the thought vanishes.

Why don’t I write things down? Well, that would mean remembering to carry a pencil.
