Senior Moments

Even though I’m only 26, I find myself having “senior moments” a little too frequently. Sometimes it’s something simple like opening a browser window and forgetting where I was going to go. Other times it’s a little more blatent, like when I find myself in the Post Office parking lot when I really meant to drive somewhere for lunch. Today, though, was the most annoying senior moment of all…

It’s Sunday, the day of the week that I always cook, no matter what. Yesterday I had a nice North Indian-style cauliflower soup (with Garam Masala rather than straight curry) planned and just needed to get a few ingredients from the supermarket. I made the trip, braved the annoying Sunday crowds, and came back ready to cook.

Problem: no cauliflower.

Tonight: another trip to the market for cauliflower, and that’s it. If I only have one thing to remember, I’ll know if I’ve forgotten it before I drive away.

Another example - forgetting to remove the Christmas lights from your house ;)

I get these moments all the time. Last week, though, both Jeani and I couldn't figure out why we needed to go online; we needed to check something, but never did figure it out.

I think the walking into rooms without knowing why is a big one.

I have a "senior moment" every time I go to the video store (which is pretty often). There's always one or two titles I have in mind that I desperate want to rent, but I'll be damned if I don't remember what they are when I get there. The college kids who work there must think I'm insane. They're right.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
