Living Between the Lines

Those Senior moments

You know you are getting old when you gather dog lead, phone and poo bags, ready for a walk with your faithful old Golden Retriever, and five minutes later, realise you cannot find your phone. Phone has completely disappeared. Phone cannot be rung from landline because it is on silent and out of signal.
Dog grows ever more impatient, so you decide you will resume the search on your return. Friend takes her phone with her so should there be an emergency (dog collapsing or photograph needing to be taken) friend has it covered.
Returning some 40 mins later from a walk that used to take Dog half the time, you declare that the phone has just disappeared from the face of the earth. You take off your jacket and are at the point of pulling apart every chair in the living room when you happen to feel something in the back pocket of your jeans…
…your phone.
Your phone has sat in your back pocket throughout. This is because you stashed it there when you were distracted for a moment. Don’t you remember? Oh, yes of course!
Yes, a senior moment to be sure!
