I laugh at myself when I remember these but those times that I was on the brink of being so forgetful, I was alarmed.  I even had to research what being forgetful means in one’s health. Back then, I haven’t started blogging at WordPress yet but I have been reading a lot since I was in high school.

Does this happen to you when things seem to slip your mind and no matter how you force yourself to remember, at that particular moment, you just can’t. I know, forgetting things occasionally is part of life.

One thing that I always forget is the name of the plant I used to have in the garden. I know, it starts near the first letter of the alphabet, clearly I couldn’t recall its name.  Yesterday though,  I was looking at my several albums at Facebook because I wanted to change my profile picture into a flower. Then I saw this.

Took this shot many years ago but at times it still slips my mind. It’s Begonia. Why is is that at the moment we want to remember,we simply forget.  Bear in mind Arlene, this is Begonia.

There is this small mini mart (a one-stop shop for those groceries that you simply forgot to load in your cart) at the corner of the street going to our subdivision. Come to think of it, all these years, I thought it was called Seven Eleven only to be told several times by my son that it is Ministop. Both are 24-hour convenience stores where they sell groceries and snacks and even meals. Until now, when I think of it, I always think of the former instead of the latter.

I tell you, this happens all the time now, you enter your bedroom planning to get something but you see those pillows still scattered atop the bed. What would you do? Arrange them right? Then you clearly forgot what you were there for until you come back again to get it. It is annoying at times but it is the name of the game now.

Ageing or getting old.
