Strawberries


imageA couple in their nineties were both having problems remembering things. During a checkup, the doctor told them they were physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember. Later that night, while watching TV, the old woman got up from her chair. “Want anything while I’m in the kitchen?” she asked.

“Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?”

“Sure.”

“Don’t you think you should write it down so you can remember it?” he asked.

“No, I can remember it.”

“Well, I’d like some strawberries on top, too. Maybe you should write it down, so’s not to forget it.”

“I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries.”

“I’d also like whipped cream. You’re going to forget. Write it down, okay?”

Irritated, she snapped, “I don’t need to write it down, I can remember it. Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream—I got it, for goodness sake!” Then she shuffled off to the kitchen. After about twenty minutes, she returned from the kitchen and handed her husband a plate of bacon and eggs. He stared at the plate for a moment.

“I knew you’d forget,” he grumbled. “Where’s the toast?”
