Tell me, why would doctors recommend walking as a form of exercise for those of us who are middle-aged, when everyone knows that it causes memory loss? Seriously, how many of you have walked into a room and forgotten why?
The most inconvenient time for this is when I’m in the shower. “Buy more shampoo, buy more shampoo, buy more shampoo,” I chant, carrying the nearly empty bottle in one hand, as I sprint to the kitchen, dripping wet, to add it to the grocery list. Forget trying to remember to do it after my shower – it just ain’t gonna happen.
So alas, because of my short-circuited memory, this is now my new routine to remember things – stop in the middle of whatever I’m doing and make the mad dash – be it shampoo, body wash, toothpaste, floss, or whatever.
OK, I do draw the line when it comes to toilet paper…
