You Know…What’s Her Name?
Big time teen crush!
They say as you get older the mind starts to go. Who says that? I don’t know. See what I mean? With me I have trouble with that perfect word to fill a thought. When writing I often just put ______ for the perfect word that I am searching for because I know it will come to me eventually.
I also have trouble with names. I have trouble with names I used to know immediately but now I struggle to remember. Apparently Mrs. Cranky whose mind is like a steel trap is also starting to struggle with names.
Tonight we went to see a movie. During the coming attractions, one movie was featuring an older star that used to be a favorite of mine and yet I could not place her name. Mrs. Cranky couldn’t remember either, but together we figured it out though the figuring out was somewhat strange.
I started the process.
“I know that actress, she has aged quite a bit.”
“The older one. She was Irma in “Irma la Duce” …you know the DVD I bought last year because it was one of my favorite movies and we could barely get through it.”
“Oh, Warren Beatty’s sister.”
“Yes, only her name is not Beatty, and she was a star before Warren.”
“And she is a little out there with other lifetimes and séances and stuff.”
“Yes, what’s her name.”
“I don’t know; it will come to me.”
“I think it’s McSomething.”
“Couldn’t have done it without you.”
Two old minds may not be better than one, but they get the job done.
