Most of us being in our twenties to sixties have experienced a moment or two of Forgetful Mind Syndrome. The misplaced keys, searching for sunglasses while they are on top of one’s head the whole time. The misplaced cell phone found in various places, that note you just wrote seconds ago and you know it was right in front of you just moments ago but nowhere to be found to only show up at a later time when no longer needed, -it only gets worse as we age
Yesterday was Deb’s Mother and Step-father’s 24th anniversary, so we paid a visit with a card in hand and ritual blessings. After awhile of chatting and laughing, my cell phone notified me of some new followers (thank you my new friends 🙂 ), I showed Deb. Deb’s Mother Jan had a facial expression of curiosity upon her face, so Deb informed her Mother about my Blog and what it was about and gave a few examples, one of them was a post I did back in July, LEVITY -HUMOR AT MY EXPENSE. A TRUE STORY!. That is when Jan said, “You know what you can put on your Blog….” So this is with permission.
The day started like most other nothing out of the ordinary. Jan told her husband that she wanted to go to the store. Gene replied, “I’ll go” “nope, I’ll go by myself,” Jan said. So off she went. Once shopping was done and paid for, she exited the store and proceeded to load the car with the groceries. She headed back to the car and placed herself on the passenger side. Are you following?
So there she was in the car sitting on the passenger side wondering why the car has not moved. I busted a gasket on this one.
Funny how our minds function at certain times. At least the keys were not locked inside the car. Most of us have been down that road.
What can we take away from this? We have to be able to laugh at ourselves from to time, it does a body and mind good according to a study done in 2011.
