A Must-see Movie—But I Can’t Recall the Title — 14 Comments

  1. This is so funny! Maybe you shoukd carry a notebook and jot down the info. Put a plus sign at the top of the page for the ones you liked and a minus for the ones you didn’t. 😉

    • Thanks for the tip, Michele! I’ll consider it. Maybe I’ll do what a friend does. He keeps a log of all the movies and TV shows he’s seen. Before choosing a new one he checks his book to see if he’s already seen it!

    • My genre has been humor for quite a few years now but I mix in a little reflection and inspiration from time to time. We oldsters need a touch of comedy now and then. 🙂

  2. Happy Easter, Karen! Loves your FB picture. Are those your kids?
    One of the things I love about having a smartphone is being able to look things up on the spot. It’s not uncommon to be in the middle of a movie, and if it’s historical, Kai will look up the hiatory on his computer and read about it to see how accurate the portrayal is. We stop the movie for.while to do this, so it takes a lot longer to get through it and sometimes it is ruined by knowing the truth on the matter. Sometimes it’s just TMI!

    • Yes, those are my kids on the FB pic with me. They treated me to a weekend in So. CA for my birthday and we spent a day at the Getty Museum. A passerby took our photo on the stairwell. I love it.

  3. LOVE IT !! So funny because it is so true to life! I usually
    remember things like this the minute I get home or away from the person to whom I am talking!! Thanks for another good one !!

    • I feel better after reading your comment–especially since you’re younger than I am but have the same ‘condition.’ (Smile!)

  4. I know what you mean Karen. This happens to me when I have been under stress or is very tired. And I make signs with my hands trying to describe it. I was telling my son I needed a vac. belt, so I was making a circle with my hand trying to describe it-you are not alone!!!

  5. Hilarious!!

    I used to be able to talk around the detail I was trying to remember (sister, other movie they’ve been in, etc.), but for the last few months, I can’t even do that! (I’m 50.)

    If I can remember (and that’s a big ‘if’) I look things up on the web when I get a chance. I can almost always find something to connect the dots…so far.

    Thanks for your wonderful blog. You remind us that we’re not alone! 🙂

    • Thanks, Lynn. You can see what’s ahead for you as you read about my senior friends and me!! If we laugh our way through these mishaps, however, it’s easier to keep on going.
