I am starting to be like that. Forget names and words. Alzheimer's?
A joke for all of us:
This could encapsulate Senior Moments as well (from my LiveJournal feed):
In my case, 'Where did I leave my spectacles or match-box (I use safety-matches to light my cigarettes, was never enamored of lighters)?" A constant question.
Those ****** beedis are so hard to quit, aren't they?
Never mind .. there are surely worse things than smoking .. but it would be nice to be free of it, all the same.
Not beedis, but the modern version, cigarettes. My youngest brother was hooked on beedis (alas, he is no more. Alcohol took him away). They are too strong for me. Covid-19 and lock-downs changed the scene in India (cigarettes and paan shops were closed for five months). Now I am down to one cigarette a day, just for old-times sake.
My wife gives me one cigarette in the morning for the day. I have to manage with that unless I am able to raid her stock and pilfer one extra.
You know you're getting old when you can empathize:
I just got back from the ophthalmologist, and I need to undergo cataract surgery in both eyes, especially the left eye.. b:bigcry:
Very sorry to hear that Phyllis. But at least they'll get it fixed for you
This growing up lark is not half as much as it's cracked up to be, is it?
Oh that sucks, @Phyllis Sidhe_Uaine! Hope the surgery goes well!
No surgery is without risk, without potential problems, but I’m confident you’ll do fine. My wife had both eyes done a few years back. May you be blessed with r’fuah sh’leima - the wholeness of healing.
