The Price of Growing Old

DURING a check-up, the doctor tells a couple that they’re physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember. Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair.
“Want anything while I’m in the kitchen?” he asks.
“Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?”
“Don’t you think you should write it down so you can remember it?” his wife asks.
“No, I can remember that.”
“Well, I’d like some strawberries on top, too. Maybe you should write it down, so as not to forget.”
“I can remember – you want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries.”
“I’d also like whipped cream. I’m certain you’ll forget that. Want to write it down?”
Irritated, he says, “I don’t need to write it down. Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream - I got it, for goodness sake!”
Then he toddles to the kitchen. After about 20 minutes, he returns and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs.
She stares at the plate for a moment, then asks, “Where’s my toast?”
