A couple in their 80?s were having problems remembering things, so they decided
to the go the doctor for a checkup. The doctor tells them that they are
physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them
Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair. His
wife asks, ?Where are you going?? ?To the kitchen for a drink,? he replies. She
asks, ? Will you get me piece of cake?? The husband says, ?Sure.? She gently
reminds him, ?Don?t you think you should write it down so you don?t forget it??
He says, ?No, I can certainly remember that!?
Then the woman says, ?Well, I?d like some strawberries on top. You?d better
write it down because I know you?ll forget it.? The man replies, ?I can remember
that! You want some cake with strawberries.?
She adds, ?I?d also like whipped cream on top. Now I?m certain you?re gonna
forget that, so you?d better write it down ok.? Irritated, he says, ?I don?t
need to write it down woman! I can remember that! Cakewith strawberries! And
whipped cream!? He then grumbles into the kitchen.
After about 30 minutes the old man returns from the kitchen and hands his wife a
plate of bacon and eggs.
She stares at the plate for a moment and says, ?Where?s my toast??
