This was touched on in another thread and I thought perhaps it might be worthy of discussion. In her later years, my mom would sometimes lose her train of thought or enter a room and forget what she was after. She'd just get a puzzled look on her face and say, "Oh well. Guess I'm just having a senior moment." She didn't have Dementia, Alzheimer's or anything, just from time to time things would seemingly pop out of her head. Names for instance. She had raised 5 children and later in life she'd often go through the entire list before getting to the right one. She knew instantly she had misspoke, but would misspeak again trying to correct herself. "Damn, another one of those senior moments," she'd say! Then there were things she'd flat out forget. Like recipes for dishes she had quite literally prepared 100's of times in her life. Now, as I reach the upper rungs on the age ladder. I find myself doing the same thing. I mean, I still have a great memory for detail and can recall things that happened long ago, but I'd be hard pressed to tell you what I just had for breakfast. The other day I was jotting numbers down as they were read out and couldn't remember for a few seconds which direction the number (3) goes in. Then there's music. Music use to be a big part of my life. I played lead guitar semi-professionally at one point in my life and composed a good many tunes. I still play pretty well, but somehow I seem to have completely forgotten how to [read] music, let alone write it. WTF? Anyone else having Senior Moments?
