Every morning I have a long phone conversation with my 90 year-old cousin She lives alone and cares for herself which is remarkable. Our conversations roam all over. Today we were doing a little research on phone line. She had the book.
We had a topic we wanted to find out about and she looked it up in the index.
"It's on page 122," she said.
She began thumbing the pages..."Fifty... seventy....ah, what page are we looking for?"
"Oh yes 100, 115, 122. Ah, what are we looking for?"
"Oh yes. Ah what is it used for?"
"Short term memory."
