I thought it might just be me, so in some trepidation I asked the ever-lovely Cuppa: Do you ever search for now but with an old picture in your mind?
I had just looked in the basement for the little heater that we keep in the bathroom in winter. We use it when we step out of the nice, warm shower into what would normally be a cold room. It's just not a nice feeling to step into the cold, so we try to remember to warm up the room a little ahead of time.
Anyway ... when I was in the basement, I found that my old brain wasn't looking for our current heater but my seeing on my mental screen the one that we used to have but relinquished about seven years ago now. I'm thankful to say that my feeble mind readjusted itself just a soon as it saw the current model and trust that means I'm not too far gone.
Similarly, for one of our recent trips, Cuppa sent me downstairs to fetch (good dog that I am) our suitcases. Instinctively, I began thinking of the big brown one that we passed to Goodwill at least a decade ago.
Finally, just yesterday (hopefully several days ago by the time you read this, assuming Google and I can get together on post-dating this time), when I was out torturing my leg muscles in the garden, I came in looking for our orange weed whacker. The trouble with that is that our whacker is yellow, as was our previous one. It was the one before that one that was orange. It's been gone for probably two decades now. Sheesh!
Thankfully in answer to my question (see paragraph one), Cuppa agreed that it had happened to her, and I felt better. Or maybe she was just being nice.
How about you? Oui ou non? If you're of an age, I surely hope that it's a oui because misery and/or brain cramps love(s) company.
