I stand before you, not behind you, to address you, not undress you, on a subject I know nothing about...
I find it so strange and fascinating that I can remember silly things like the above from my childhood and I can't remember what I ate for lunch yesterday. I guess I started filling my brain with useless nonsense at a young age and now it is almost full and today things get shoved to the nooks and crannies in the hinterland of my gray matter, sometimes never to be found again.
It's not really a bother most of the time, but sometimes I get real aggravated with not being able to remember, and then Carol, or Bro, will say something wonderful like "I don't know why it bothers you. You've always been absent-minded." Well, absent-minded is one thing. I could stop and focus and get what I wanted to know pulled back up and be a happy camper.
And how many times have I gotten up to go do something and by the time I walk into the next room I can't remember what I was going to do and I have to go back to where I started and the light bulb comes on and it's an "Oh, yeah" moment? I have to just shake my head and either laugh or groan depending on the day.
Can you remember looking at you folks or your older relatives when you were younger and laughing to yourselves and thinking "I'm never gonna be like that. Geez, they need a keeper to go to the bathroom." and now you do also? Well, maybe not you, but I?
I'll leave you today with one more little diddy that I learned a way, way long ago, like 60 years ago, and any of you younger folks can contemplate and enjoy that I need a keeper, but you never will....
Roses on my shoulders, slippers on my feet. I'm my daddy's darlin'. Don't you think I'm sweet?
And when I finished it I would always say, "Uh huh!"
Have a good one today.
