Senior Moment! – “I’ll Carry Your Books!” (or “Book it, Pastor!”)

Yesterday I took my wife to the library, where she tutors in math. Being the efficient lady she is, and wanting to keep her Mama with plenty of good books to read, checked out some books for that purpose. She asked if I would take them on out to the car. That way she could go ahead and get ready for tutoring.

I had already planned to do that, so I took the books and went out to the car. So far so good. I opened the back door, then saw something I needed to take care of.  With one hand, I moved things where they belonged and went back into the library. No problem. Mission accomplished! (Do you see where this is going?)

I got about halfway back to where Karen was set up and I looked in my hand. I just shook my head and thought, “why did I bring those in here?” I still had the bag of books in my hand, and I didn’t even know it! (And they were heavy too.) Good people, I do this all the time! I know I’m not alone in this, and that gives this senior a good deal of comfort.

  1. I have done the same thing! My worst thing is going to great lengths to make a lovely crock pot meal only to realize 6 hours later that I never turned it on. I’ve done that twice. Now that’s slow cooking!😜
