one thing I hate about getting old

My forgetfulness is increasing over time.

I keep my work clothes in the locker room at work. This morning on my bike commute, despite having acquired a nice new waterproof backpack to carry them in, I forgot to bring a clean t-shirt, a pair of underwear, and a pair of socks.

I need to get dressed. It's two hours before any of the downtown stores open.

I look around.

Bike clothes? Soaked; rainy ride.
There are ... other lockers in here, with clothes ...? No. God.
Aha.

Well, you make do with what you can. The paper towel holder is now empty.

The sun is back out. Maybe you can hang your underwear and socks out the office window to dry?

Once the underwear dries out, there's always this option:

Why would you need to make a penis out of a paper towel? ;)

If it makes you feel any better, it's not age. I'm 15 years your junior and I've always had a shit memory. I blame modern living ... we have so much going on all the time that it can be really discombobulating.

Me too. Well, not the 15 years part, more like 2, but I do not have a good memory. If I do not write things down, there is a good chance that they will be lost for good!
