Three Sisters – a humorous look at memory challenges.

Posted on

Three sisters, ages 92, 94, and 96 lived together in a large, rambling house in Asheville, North Carolina.

One night, the 96-year-old was drawing a bath.  She put her foot in and paused.  She shouted to her two sisters, “Was I getting in or out of the bath?

The 94-year-old yelled back, “I don’t know.  I’ll come up and see.”
She started up the stairs and paused, “Was I going up the stairs or down?”

The 92-year-old was sitting at the kitchen table, having tea and listening to her sisters.  She shook her head and said, “I sure hope I never get that forgetful, knock on wood…”

She then shouted, “I’ll come up and help both of you as soon as I see who’s at the door.”

    I laughed out loud at this post! Touche! You must have some stories with the job you’ve done in the past. Kudos to you. I wrote a humorous post on my blog not too long ago about kidnapping my mentor from an assisted living center that you might enjoy. I’m sure, given your line of work, you’ll recognize some of the scenerios (“To Whom it May Concern: I want a Do Over”). I think it made me start to deal with my own exit strategy in life and the reality that we don’t have much control over life. Keep up the advocacy — it’s really needed.
