Alzheimer's Scare Averted











My husband so doesn't think this conversation was that funny.

I disagree.



Husband: Can I talk to you about something?

Me: What's up?

Husband: I don't want to scare you or anything....sit down.

Me: Jesus! What???!!!

Husband: Well.... I know you've said the sleeping pills affect your memory a little...but lately you've really been forgetting things a lot. Like, a LOT.

Me: (horrified) Like I've been repeating myself?????

Husband: No.....like you forget to do stuff....

Me: Like what???????

Husband: Well, like you know how I asked you to return my shirts to Macy's..... and to return the pendant lights to the store..... and give that check to the neighbor?

Me: Yeah.....

Husband: You keep forgetting to do it.

Me: hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaaha oh.

Husband: What's so funny.

Me: I didn't forget...I just didn't do it.

Husband: ? Why not?

Me: I dunno. I just didn't.

Husband: (perplexed) So you did remember I asked you to do it....

Me: Yes.

Husband: ....but you chose not to.

Me: Correct.

Husband: And how should I feel about that.

Me: Relieved. Your wife just had an Alzheimer's scare. But she pulled through.

Husband: (*sigh*) So.....you will get that stuff done.

Me: What stuff.

Good for you! Maybe we should have a Alzheimer's Scare Averted party?

Aria said...

I averted the same disaster when I didn't sew hubby's buttons back on, or clean out the fans, or clean out the back room, or...

Yay us!

Momcat said...

I agree. If its such an urgent job, maybe hubs could do it himself!

It's funny...reading this I'm thinking I know exactly what goes through my mind when I think about those little things I need to do. It's usually after I've been grocery shopping for three hours, or cleaned the ENTIRE house, and I think "screw that stuff, I'm TIRED." LOL

AmyLK said...

You are safe! Good! lol

Now its party time!

Shelley said...

You had me at, "What stuff?"

This sounds like a conversation my wife would have with me

3 Peanuts said...

Sasstown said...

That sounds like an eerily familiar conversation, sometimes I even have it with myself.

Lisa-licious said...

♥ Kathy said...

hahahahahahaa I thought it was hilarious!!

midlifenatalie said...

what a relief! i totally would be freaking out if someone started to tell me they thought i was losing it. glad to know your memory is just selective!

Susie Q said...

Too stinking funny! Tell the hubs to GIT ON IT if he wants it done Pronto! Otherwise............whenever!
You're my kinda girl!

Nik said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE this!! lol

I can't tell you how many times I've just not done something for the hubs. It's like..c'mon already...I'm not your maid!

The thing that really bugs me is when he wants ME to call HIS Dr. for appointments and prescriptions. Drives me nuts I tell ya.

Hysterical!

Almost as funny as when I had to rush my husband to the ER because he couldn't see all the numbers on his cell phone, the light bothered his eyes, and he felt weak --- only to find out ($23,700 later) that he was having a migraine!

Me: I've been dealing with migraines for the past 40 years. You get one and we end up in the ER! Classic!

Him: Yours must not be as bad.

Dawn in Austin said...

Oh yes, we've had conversations very similar to that one. Usually mine end with me saying, "Lack of preparation on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part."

Love the comment from A-Deb. Classic husbandism!

Syl said...

That was absolutely hilarious!!!! Too bad I was reading your post at work and got some weird looks as I burst into laughter.

Daddy Geek Boy said...

With me, I usually have forgotten.

choochoo said...

That's not alzheimers. That's selective memory. Selective memory is an artform that takes skill to master completely.

男人有了外遇,但是他不想離婚
外遇情人面前,他可以享受著年輕戀愛般的美好
在回歸家庭時刻,他可以享受著老婆對他無微不至的照顧
在同事朋友面前,他可以享受著眾人對他的忌妒與羨慕
男人有了外遇,但是他不想離婚,他只想自私的擁有一切

外遇---偷來的時間、偷來的伴侶、偷來的愛情
或許新鮮刺激,或許瘋狂美好,但這一切,終究是偷來的…
外遇傷害了一個幸福的家庭
或許你會說:問題其實早已存在,外遇並不是傷害的唯一因素
但是內心深處其實你知道,這只是外遇的藉口!
建築在傷害別人之下所得到的愛情,終究難以幸福…

顫抖著手,我拿不穩那份薄薄的離婚協議書
早知道他的出軌,癡心的守候最後他終究還是想要離婚
朋友勸我抓姦,但是我擔心他一氣之下會決裂的提出離婚要求
我愛他,願意作出一切只為挽回
所以我等、我默不吭聲、我在他面前強顏歡笑
多少夜裡,他用敷衍的藉口不歸
而我假裝相信,卻淚濕了枕頭...
顫抖著手,我拿不穩那份薄薄的離婚協議書
啞著聲音,我告訴他我絕對不會離婚去成全他們
只是,我不知道不離婚,懲罰的是他們,還是我自己...
