Senile Decay

I have one of those old fashioned drinks cabinet with a drop down flap.

I've just got myself a glass, poured a nice long cool beer and closed the flap.

Unfortunately the glass was still on the flap.

If I'd knocked it over, or dropped it, it would have been bad enough, but to do something so unutterably stupid, with no-one or nothing to blame but myself is so infuriating!

I could say, had I been there 'A penny for your thoughts' What where you thinking of beside the beer? You obviously cannot dual task.

"What where you thinking of beside the beer?"

What could be more important than beer? Was there perhaps a nice bottle of malt that distracted you...

This morning I poured a glass of milk which I hate, and poured a little orange juice into my coffee... Not much hope for me either!

Fell asleep in bed the other night having forgotten to drink the large mug of hot chocolate that was still in my hands. To my credit, I must have kept it steady for a good while in my sleep, as the wet feeling that woke me up shortly after was from cold chocolate. My bedding looked lovely with a large brown stain.

Not all that many years ago, I never considered Senile Decay, but now I have my doubts.

Block of chocolate in the fire, and the wrapper in the mouth. The best part, is when you realise, then try to retrieve the chocolate. That exercise is definitely Not Recommended.

You've just made me feel uneasy with the thought of silver paper on my fillings! It's electrifying, literally.

Thanks for the laugh guys and gals. Of course I would never do anything so silly would I? Hold your tongue Brumas!

to prepare a chicken, put it into a roasting tin, and slip it into the fridge to cook.

I've also been guilty of chucking knives and forks into the kitchen waste bin whilst talking.

I tell my wife that they are simply the actions of someone who has a great deal going on in his mind, but I have a sense that she's not fooled. She says she can read my mind, and sometimes there's not a lot of activity there.

My wife purchased a chicken from M&S to go with a salad. On opening it, she marvelled at the tray it came on. Not the usual polystyrene, but a metal tray.

Then the penny dropped. The chicken wasn't cooked. It had to go in the oven for 2 hours.

We had tea at 10.30pm, once the chicken had been cooked and cooled again to go with the salad.

Glad it wasn't me.

Helped my wife cook Sunday dinner and did the Cauliflower cheese. All I forgot was to cook the cauliflower.
