Is it just me or does getting older make one stupider?
I honestly use to know more. I did. It’s not a figment of my imagination and it’s not because I was a ‘know it all’ as a kid either.
But I swear to you, I think sometimes all the lights are on in my mind, but no one’s home.
My Mom refers to these ‘gaps’ as ‘senior moments’. These are the moments when you know that you know something but it’s not coming to you as quickly as it once did. But my Mom is twenty-three years older than I am and I’m just not ready to have senior moments yet, so that just leaves me with the option of being stupid.
I’m not happy about this.
Today I went the whole day thinking that my cell phone was sitting in its charger at home, I didn’t make any calls because I didn’t have my phone. Then about 3 pm it rang from inside my purse. Yep, I had the darn thing all along.
I also went to the grocery store and left the list at home. I tried to drop off my daughter for a swimming lesson that was on a different night and I totally forgot that I had put cookies in the oven, and since I didn’t set the timer, I burnt the whole pan. All of these things happened in and around the same three hours.
Now I realize that none of these things are all that important in the grand scheme of things but they have left me wondering, many times today actually, if I’m losing my mind.
I think I’ll go and pour myself a glass of wine, at least then I came blame anything stupid I do on the alcohol.
While I’m at it I think I’ll have a burnt cookie too. Can I blame anything on chocolate, other then a big behind? Let me know.
