The other night my wife and I were having dinner with another couple. I was regaling them with a quite amusing story when, about halfway through, I noticed my wife making a cutting motion across her throat with her index finger. This threw off my timing as I paused and looked around the table, and then realized that I had already told them this story a few days before.
A lot of people might have been upset by this, but I know it is an anomaly and not indicative of my mental abilities nor does it have anything to do with my age.
So don’t worry about me. I’ll be just fine.
