A Senior Moment


A Senior Moment

Now even I am worried, except I know others have done this, even before they've turned the corner on the actuary table.  I think.  Maybe.
The other day I was talking to Frog on my cell phone.  While I was wrapping up the conversation I started to get my stuff together for some basement guitar practice and golf watching time.  I grabbed my computer and mouse, my coffee cup, and then started searching for something else (I know a bunch of you know what that something else was).


I looked right and left.  I checked my night table.  Finally, Mrs. C asked,


“What are you looking for?”


“My cell phone, (you were right weren’t you) I must have left it downstairs when I made breakfast.”


“Maybe, but I don’t think so.”


“Why?”
Then Frog had to chime in,
“Ah Joe, are you looking for your cell phone?”
“Yes, I almost always have it handy, but…oh.”
I am somewhat comforted in that I did figure it out before being directly told where to look.
This could happen to anybody, right?  Come on young people tell me you’ve done the same thing…please.

  1. LOL, haven't quite done this one yet but did have a weekend of senior moments. Got taxes done and forgot some of the things I normally would have included. Was at church yesterday and realized I forgot to bring a check for giving (thank God for online giving). My latest senior moment is I'll be walking to somewhere else in the house and then turn around realizing I needed to do something behind me. At least I still remember my name, birthday, and can spell "world" backwards (a test they give for memory) along with doing serial 7's subtracting 7 from 106 on down the line. I practice these things at night when I can't sleep. It never hurts to study.

  2. Not with my cell phone, but yesterday I put my freshly made cup of coffee in the fridge and carried the carton of milk to the table.

  3. I don't count - I'm not young. I could list my senior moments on a Rolodex.

  4. Never ... Obviously that's a lie :-)

  5. As an elderly I think I am excused for all the times I have 'mislaid' the iPhone. You'll like this, I hope..... I use the torch provided by the phone at night. Guess how many times I have 'lost' the phone, not realising the damn thing is in use as a flippin' torch.

  6. We are all comrades in arms -- but whose arms?

  7. Everyone does this.

    A true story from a magazine for home schooling mothers: A mom was sitting at the kitchen table, her children around her, giving them their first morning school assignments when she suddenly yelled, "Wait! Where's the baby!" The children looked at her like she was crazy, she was nursing the baby!

    So it's not an age thing at all. And i've looked for my keys more than once when i had them with me.

  8. Oh, I can't stop laughing at this. It hits close to home. (But I am an old person with a family history of senility)

  9. Happens to me all of the time. I always keep my keys in my left pocket, cell phone in my right. There have been many times when I'm on the phone and start trying to figure out why my right pocket is empty.

  10. You're fine, Joe. This kind of thing happens to me every single day.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  11. My son-in-law was only about 40 when he was pleading with his daughters to tell him where they had hidden his glasses. He told them he couldn't find them & he had looked everywhere! When they were finally able to stop laughing, they told them they were in his hand.

  12. It's just our brains not being able to evolve as fast as technology. I'm reading a hardcover book for the first time in like a year and I keep trying to swipe the pages the way you turn pages on the kindle....

  13. Haven't done that yet, but there is still time.

  14. I recognize that I'm getting more forgetful as the years pass. It doesn't help that my memory is now about as long as a goldfish's and usually what I need is upstairs or downstairs, never where I happen to be.

  15. Phew, now I can be glad I don't have a smart phone (cept for that emergency flip phone that never leaves my purse). One less thing I have to look for.

  16. My husband is always misplacing his glasses because they're pushed up onto his head.

  17. I've heard of someone who used her cell phone to call her cell phone so that she would hear the phone ring and then know where the cell phone is.

    Whew...I'm not quite there yet. Neither are you.

  18. Thank goodness YOU weren't pouring your heart out to the wrong grave at the cemetery...

  19. The young cashier at the grocery store had a Senior moment when she handed hubby his receipt and the coin part of his change, but not the bills. And we had a Senior moment when we didn't even notice. At home he finally noticed and spent a couple of hours searching the house and yard for it and finally gave up. The next day the store called us and said the girl's register was over that amount and they reviewed the film and saw us. Senior moments are not just for Seniors!
