Today was another day when I was reminded that I am slowly losing my intellect. I used to pride myself on my vigorous mind. Pride goes before the.....what's that word? Ah yes, my fall from pride today went like this:
a phone call to my mother
me: Hi mom! How's your day going? Hey, I was just wondering when Jim (my step-dad) and Blair (my step-sister) are supposed to get here today?
mom: What? You thought they were coming today? They are coming next Friday!
So my kids are all excited to see Aunt Blair, and their aging mother has the day wrong. DOH!
