Tonight we were eating and I was trying to tell Vince about a blog reader’s comment about a clock that isn’t really a time keeping clock but tells you the days of the week.
Me: A blog reader was saying that she found a thing that looks like a clock but it tells you what day of the week it is.
Vince: A cow? A cow tells you the day of the week?
Me: A clock! Not really a clock but kinda like a clock.
Vince: Why do we care what day of the week it is?
Me: You were asking me just yesterday what day it is.
Vince: I needed to know that because of my pills.
Me: Do you have some pills you don’t take everyday?
Vince: No. Take everything the same every day.
Me: Well . . ok!
Vince: But . how did a cow get into this story?
We definitely do not speak the same language most days.
Diane in CA says
I found a great clock that helps me with what day it is… Check it out on Amazon.. search: Dementia Clock.. It says the time, day, date and if its afternoon, evening, night.. everything you need to know when you wake up groggy from your nap!
Rebecca in SoCal says
The cow wandered into Vince’s open mind! 😀
I have an indoor/outdoor thermometer that also shows the day of the week, the date, the time, and the phase of the moon. It sits on the counter in a corner of my kitchen. I’d be lost without it!
Nelle Coursey says
I think it is called selective hearing!!
You two make me laugh. Well, maybe it is just Vince that does.
Judy Laquidara says
I’m glad you’re laughing! Sometimes it’s more frustrating than funny.
I’m sure it is frustrating. I have a friend who tells me many of the same type of conversations with her husband. She gets so frustrated at the time but can’t laugh at most of them later.
Judy H says
On a serious note, do you think Vince need his hearing checked? Or was he just distracted? When my husband is distracted he can’t hold a conversation, either!
Amy (Waunaknit) says
Oh dear Vince, you crack me up!
Susan Nixon says
Oh, that made me laugh. I don’t know whether it’s what Vince says or the way you tell a story, but I can never go away from here feeling blue. =0)
