Yesterday, I was in a tizz, rushing to make my dinner and then go out. I put the lettuce bowl in the hot oven and reached out to put my peeled potatoes into the fridge.
I rushed to the oven.... "No-no-no!!!"
The lettuce in its plastic bowl had only been in the oven about 5 seconds, but I was horrified.
Why is it that if someone in oh, let's say their twenties, put a lettuce into the oven by mistake, everyone would think it hilarious, but if I do it as a senior citizen, I could be rushed into a rest home?
We have to be very careful over momentary lapses. A friend worked at the hospital. She told me a memory mistake reported to a doctor could well see us oldies taken into care.
Oh dear, I hope my doctor is not reading this blog. Doc, I'm sure that my lettuce mishap was truly a oncer (fingers crossed).
