Memory fails me
An 80 year old couple were watching TV one night. The old man got up from his chair and his wife asks, "Where are you going?"
He replies, "To the kitchen. You want anything?"
She asks, "Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?"
He replies, "Sure."
She then asks him, "Your memories not so good anymore. Don't you think you should write it down so you can remember it?"
He says, "No, I can remember a simple thing like that."
She then says, "Well, I also would like some strawberries on top. You had better write that down cause I know you'll forget that."
He says, "I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries."
She replies, "Well, I also would like whip cream on top. And I know you will forget that so you better write it down."
With irritation in his voice, he says, "I don't need to write that down, I can remember that." He then fumes into the kitchen.
After about 20 minutes he returns from the kitchen and hands her a plate of bacon and eggs.
She stares at the plate for a moment then says, "You forgot my toast."
