An older couple was perfectly healthy, but they had problems remembering things. Their doctor recommended that they make written notes to help them remember. So one night while watching TV, the old man got up from his chair and his wife asked, "Where are you going?"
He replied, "To the kitchen."
She: "Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?"
She: "Don't you think you should write it down so you can remember it?"
He: "No, I can remember."
She: "Please put some strawberries on it. You better write that down 'cause I know you'll forget."
He: "I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries."
She: "Well, I'd also like whipped cream on top. I know you'll forget that, so you'd better write it down."
He: "No, I don't need to write it down! I can remember!"
Fuming, he went into the kitchen. After about 20 minutes he returned and handed her a plate of bacon and eggs.
She stared at the plate for a moment and said, "You forgot my toast."
