- Used shampoo to wash my whole body in the shower, cause that's what I poured into my hand, and didn't need to do my hair either. I have liquid body soap, which is the problem. The bottles look alike.
- Put the half and half in the microwave instead of fridge after fixing coffee.
- Ran naked to answer phone in living room with all the curtains open (hope you don't walk on my street!)
- Walk around saying the words of things I see or do, and they are nothing like the correct ones. Feed the fish became "walk the dog." Alright, they both had to do with pets. I don't have a dog!
Yep, I talk to the fish, and the cats, and of course the tomato plants...the geraniums, etc. They don't care how accurate I am. They have their own languages which I don't understand anyway.
I reassure myself that I sometimes just haven't got the link working in my brain correctly before I go out and try to drive or talk with other people.
I am pretty sure this is normal aging forgetfulness. (There was a time a couple of years ago I was certain it was Alzheimer's.) But now I feel like getting as much rest, as much brain food (fish 3 times a week), and reducing my level of stress is helping. So if I don't volunteer for anything else, unless I give up something I've already said I'd do, the reason is I want to coddle my brain somehow. Be nice to it...take care that it takes care of me as long as I need it. I sure love to exercise it too! Love word games, puzzles, reading, and learning new things...etc.
