|An 80-year-old couple were having problems remembering things, so theydecided to go to their doctor to get checked out to make sure nothing waswrong with them. When they arrived at the doctor's, they explained to the doctor aboutthe problems they were having with their memory. After checking the coupleout, the doctor told them that they were physically okay but might want tostart writing things down and make notes to help them remember things. Thecouple thanked the doctor and left. Later that night while watching TV, the old man got up from his chairand his wife asked, "Where are you going?" He replied, "To the kitchen." She asked, "Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?" He replied, "Sure." She then asked him, "Don't you think you should write it down so you canremember it?" He said, "No, I can remember that." She then said, "Well, I also would like some strawberries on top. Youhad better write that down 'cause I know you'll forget that." He said, "I can remember that! You want a bowl of ice cream withstrawberries." She replied, "Well, I'd also like whipped cream on top. I know you'llforget that so you'd better write it down." With irritation in his voice, he said, "I don't need to write that down!I can remember that." He then went fuming into the kitchen. After about 20 minutes he returned from the kitchen and handed her aplate of bacon and eggs. She stared at the plate for a moment and said, "You forgot my toast."
