Side Effects

Old Age Side Effects...

Trying to wipe a hair off your lapel just to discover it is attached to your chin.

Leaving church, your husband stops to talk, you go on to the car; the gentleman behind the wheel ask, "Are you going home with me today?"

You turn your left turn signal on and leave it on all day.

Non-life threatening skin growths large enough to name after a pet or relative begin to appear.

Your neck tissue takes on a life of it own. So, you are afraid to leave the house during Thanksgiving week.

You drive up to a curb side mailbox and order a cheeseburger and fries.

You enter the car wash from the wrong way and don't understand why the lady in the other car is yelling at you; you are just as surprised to see her as she is to see you.

Putting your Dillard's bill in the collection plate by mistake.

Leave the house to discover you have on a mismatched pair of earrings. Return to house and change earrings, leaving the house with the other set of mismatched earrings on.

Try to exercise by jogging, but it just makes the wine spill out of your glass all over the place.

  1. they love to talk about one thing, and always the same length and repetitive, it always makes me sleepy

  2. Actually number 8 is a very good idea. It's worth a shot anyway and you have the added advantage of blaming it on getting old and forgetful :)

  4. Oh my COD, all of those are so funny. I had to go change my undies, I laughed so hard. And I so needed to laugh like that. So far I haven't driven up to a mailbox for a cheeseburger but who knows. Thanks so much Sandee. This was terrific.

  9. My wife used to laugh at me when I went to the kitchen during a commercial but came back with a blank look on my face because I forgot why I went out there. She doesn't laugh any more.

  11. Most of these can really happen, I know. This morning I put my golf clubs onto the cart and saw the other fellows were already there.

    In my senior moment I was ready to go back home real quick because I though I had not taken Mrs. Jim's clubs off before I took the cart.

    Of course she had it at our club course and there was no way that I could have them at this place, not the cart either.

    Since I had said something that episode was a bit embarassing.

  14. hahaha this is hilarious Sandee! I'm 36 and I blame the general anaesthesia (which I had twice now) for my forgetfulness.

  18. I am just about to go to bed here in Jamaica and this has certainly put a smile on my face. No.2 was really funny! I now remember someone telling me that a couple in church were talking together when the wife suddenly said "I caught you red- handed!" She meant he was talking to another woman!:) Have a good night Sandee.

  19. Looking for my glasses the other day. Turned the house upside down---finally found them hanging on my nose. True and depressing!

  25. #3 could be interesting. He thinks he's getting new meat, maybe that would rev up his engine a bit.

    I wish you would enable name/URL commenting option Sandy, I'd comment on your blog a lot more if you did!!
