Getting older

I don't know how old you are, beloved, reading this, but I am 74 and have some questions for you in that area of life.

Do you ever walk purposefully into a room and forget why you went there?

I do.

Do you ever open a cabinet or a drawer to get something and not know what you're looking for?

I do.

Do you ever open the refrigerator to get something and are not sure why?

I do.

Ever pick up your car keys and wonder for a moment where you're going?

I do.

In my youth my IQ was 154.

Not sure I want to take the test now.

But maybe IQ doesn't have to do with the lapses of memory as you get older.

I don't know.

But I do know this: sometimes in a few seconds, I forget what I'm up to when I knew for sure those few seconds ago.

Getting older is a trip!

Just not always a good one.
