Brain Freeze

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.

Guess your step father wouldn't know much about computers, huh? Don't worry we all have those moments. Paula
