One senior moment per day is what I allow myself, but when I have FOUR in one morning, I begin to wonder if I am aging too fast.
1. I was riding in my power chair down the driveway between the old folks home and a neighboring business. I came to a speed bump and slowed to the slowest speed and eased over it. As I did so there was a horrible screetching noise.
"My Gawd," I thought,"I'm pulling the machine apart." I crept forward and went over the next bump as slowly as I could. Another screetching. Horrors.
I came to a complete stop. And there was another screetch while I was standing still.
There was a roofer on top of the business building pulling off the old roof with a crowbar. The rusty nails were screetching as he pulled them out. That was what I heard.
2. I noticed a window I had opened earlier, was closed. I just thought I had opened it, and remembered doing something I hadn't done.
3. I told my tablemates that my step-father was coming today to help me with my computer. They looked at me with rather blank puzzled looks. "Oh, no, I mean my son-in-law is coming," I retracted
4 I was worried about FOUR senior moments, but can only remember three, so that makes four, I guess. If I do remember it later, that will make five.
5. Oh,yes, I connected a new hard drive to my computer, but now my printer doesn't work I guess that does make five.
