Sally and Alastair

This may only be funny to me - and Andrew, but I figured I'd post it in case I ever wanted to reread something that made us laugh.  

On Sunday Andrew and I were out together and talk of his upcoming birthday came up. He said, "I'm getting so old I can't remember anything, Sally*."

I replied: "Yeah, I know what you mean, Alastair."

An incredulous pause by Andrew.

"Alastair?! Who thinks of *Alastair* when they are losing their memory?"

Hahahahaa...OK, maybe you had to be there. :)


(*This is the name he calls me whenever he pretends his memory is failing).

The other day, I saw a clip of a stand up comedian. He joked about the many things he can do without being blamed for it because of his age. Skipping social events, forgetting responsibilities, etc. The best I liked if he is in a party and didn't want to stay longer he just can tell them I am too old I have to sleep early. I found that funny because he is right we don't push old people much if they forgot a birthday or an event. They can just tell us they forgot and would be totally okay :)
It seems Andrew is using this trick already :)

I think it must be nice to be married to an Alastair. At least you know when you call his name in a crowded room he's the only one who'll turn around! ;)

Amber, that's funny! When he's called me this week, he has been saying, "Hey, Sally. Alastair here."
