Why do you think so many discussions on A2K end up...

@Frank Apisa,
I'll bet your memory isn't what it used to be, Frank. Am I right?

@Lustig Andrei,
How would I know if you are right?

I get that I should, Lola, but this growing old has its costs. My memory simply is not what it used to be...besides which, my memory is not what it used to be.
Gimme a hint. Ragman already has, but I'm having trouble remembering the person he is suggesting, because my memory is not what it used to be.

Thanks Frank that was worth a chuckle. Very Happy
Well played.

This is priceless. I'm quite entertained, but let me assure everyone that this is a waste of precious cognitive assimilation and expenditure of cerebral energy metabolisms.

@Frank Apisa,
A lot of what going on?

Seriously, peculiar phenomenon of A2K imitating real life. I'm dealing with this very issue of memory loss and confusion with my oldest sister who's 78. My next oldest sister (65) and I also live in same city as her. We have just moved her into an assisted living facility for safe keeping. She was becoming a hazardous to her own safety with her living alone in her own home and also with driving. Processing time and reaction time has markedly changed for the worse.

She just recently permanently burned up a microwave by putting a metal dish for nuking. Set off all the smoke detectors on her floor, too. When asked about it, she shrugged her shoulders and asked how that could have happened. She couldn't believe it was her.

At some point in the day, generally, we can have a reasonable conversation with her, complete with humor and some awareness. Then, after a variable interval of anywhere from 5 minutes to an hour, she'll ask the same questions again. We're hoping that a neurologist appointment will shed some light on this recent abrupt change. We think there were some 'silent' TIAs that occured.

Priceless? I think they're that company William Shatner shills for.

@Ragman,
Try this when you next visit her. In a quite room, mute the tv and talk to a buddy without voice. It drove my grandma nuts the first time she's had this done on her. She literally thought she lost her mind and her hearing.

@Ragman,
Just try it on your oldest sister or your next oldest sister, if you want, and see the reaction. It's a harmless prank.

Ragman, sympathy from here, on both sides of the issue.

@ossobuco,
It's a natural consequence of living on this goddamn earth for some. But what I think is important is giving them a strong support system, and bringing laughter and humor into their lives as much as possible.
