Senior Moments…

Seems I had another one and totally forgot about this blog… Geez… What are “senior moments” you ask? Well, they are those subtle (subtle???) little reminders that you’re getting old… reminders that can embarrass and humiliate you (if you remember them)… frighten the #@*! outta ya and just make life more challenging… Ask anyone over 50 what a senior moment is and I’m sure they’ll have plenty of ’em… there’s such an infinite variety…

Memory lapses are the most frequent and notable… walking into a room and forgetting why you’re there is a common one… remembering names is another… no sooner are you introduced to someone, you forget their name and fall back to “hey you”… otherwise you poke or nudge them to get their attention… 

Hearing loss is another way to go… not to mention the vision… either you don’t hear something or you’re tripping over something… God forbid you should try to read the paper without your glasses… And then people are always complaining that you have “selective hearing”… Considering the people I deal with on a daily basis, maybe I do… =}

And let us not forget the incontinence and flatulence that comes with old age. Or constipation that makes you howl in the bathroom… putting your underwear on backwards… different colored socks that looked identical when you put them on… alas… the list goes on and on…

Senior moments are those nasty little episodes that humble a person… redden the cheeks and insist upon happening at the worst possible moment and when you least expect it…

They say you get wiser as you get older… sure… if you can remember it…

Till next time…
