Lately I have started worrying about my ability to concentrate for more than 5 seconds at the time. After I hit 40 it all started going down-hill... My life now consist of more or less funny incidents that prove to me that I am slowly loosing my brain!
Like when I got out of the grocery store, walked over to my dad's car, opened the back door, loaded all the groceries, sat down into the passenger seat and looked over at - A STRANGER! The man looked at me like I was a crazy car-jacker (Hello! Would I then be loading groceries into your car?) and all I could say was: You'r not my dad! Duh! I got out of the car and then had to proceed to get all the groceries out of the backseat too. My dad was just about having a fit over in his car. He couldn't stop laughing for an hour.
Then a few weeks later I was picking my son up from school, driving home with him, picking my girl up from daycare and taking her to choir practice. Sounds simple? This is what I did: Picked up son from school, drove home (30 minutes), changed shoes, got my son back into the car (?), passed the daycare center and drove (20 minutes) to choir practice. Stopped outside and looked over at my son, realizing that I had taken the wrong kid to choir practice and that my daughter was now at daycare after closing hours. I'm now known as the mom who forgot her kid at daycare (You have heard of those right? Usually a mom that smells of booze, cigarettes and has one lazy eye...)
And then I went out forgetting to put my bra on! Would be kind of cute if I was the petit perky kind of girl, but my D-cup sisters do not look their best swaying in the wind... and it was cold that day too! At least I didn't forget to put my skirt on this time. I did that once too - I had on a long sweater, high boots and a black short skirt (at least I thought so). Getting out of the car I look down and realize that my skirt is REALLY REALLY short - of course I had no skirt on! I actually had flashed the parking guard .... YIKES!
And the list just goes on!
