Having a few "Senior Moments"
Not me. But my DH. He's only 38.
My mother likes to call those moments when you do something that only "old people" stereotypically do: "Senior Moments".
Today I met K in town after work and we went to go and get in the car. But he couldn't remember where he parked it. Now, this parking area isn't so big that it should be a problem to remember. So just as K was saying "I think I parked it over here" and wondering off in one direction, I went in the opposite direction towards where we normally park when we go to this particular place. Sure enough. There was our car. At least I am aware that K is a creature of habit.
When we got home tonight, a friend sent him a text. He felt obliged to write a reply so started tapping away, followed by shaking the phone and getting frustrated with it cause he couldn't do it smoothly...I can text in Japanese faster than he can....
Not to mention, K who is into his beer and very careful about wasting money went and bought, not only the wrong kind of beer (a kind he doesn't like) but the wrong size cans too. How could you not notice you brought giant cans of beer? Now he is dutifully drinking it, but I guess this is one "Senior Moment" he won't repeat ever.
In addition, he has suddenly started saying: "I wish we had a tatami room". This is mainly so he can lie on the floor after dinner especially. I don't want/need a tatami room cause I prefer to sit on the couch.
Poor K. At least he has a chipper young wife to help him find his car, text for him and buy the appropriate alcoholic beverages.
