early onset alzheimer's?

Yesterday, I had a debate with myself. I couldn't decide if the year was 2007 or 2008. I had to look at a calendar to figure it out! This wasn't the first time something like that has happened, either. A few years ago, I couldn't remember if I was 23 or 24. I had to do the math: OK, I was born in '81, and this is 2006 (at least I knew what year it was!), and I haven't had my birthday yet, so I must be 24!

This afternoon, the principal popped out of his office to ask, "Is this 2008?" I thought he was making fun of me. Nope--he really didn't know! I think this is a bad sign. I'm 26; he's 27 . . . shouldn't we still be sharp enough to know what year it is?


  1. the other day i was writing out the date. i did the month and the day, and then had to sit and think for a bit. my first thought was 06. i can't say this is the first time that has happened. another frequent thought - thinking that it's 09.

  2. I am SUPER bored today so I am reading all your old posts that i've never read...It's quite FUN actually :)

    I loved this one, I seriously DID laugh out loud..especially the 2nd paragraph :)

    Oh how I miss NC and NC life willl never be the same :)
