|An older couple visited the doctor because they were concerned about their memory loss. The doctor assured them that they were not that bad, and said that many people, including himself, tend to forget things. He recommended they start writing things down so they don't forget as often, as he does himself.
That night the man was going to the kitchen and asked his wife if she would like anything. She said "Some vanilla ice cream please," but added, "do you need to write it down?" He said "I think I can remember vanilla ice cream." Then she said, "OK, then I'll have some chocolate syrup on it too. Now do you need to write it down?" He said "No, I can remember vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup!" Then she said, "OK, then I also want some whipped cream. Now do you need to write it down?" Totally frustrated, the man said "No, I can remember vanilla ice cream, with chocolate syrup and whipped cream," and proceeded to the kitchen.
After working in the kitchen for a few minutes, he returned and handed his wife a plate of ham and eggs. The wife looked at him with a very frustrated expression. So the husband asked, "Now what's the matter?"
The wife looked at the plate, and in frustration said "Where's my toast?"|
