Moments of Senility

Posted Wed, 07/19/06

A friend of mine sent me the following:

The Senility Prayer

God grant me the senility to forget

the people I never liked anyway,

the good fortune to run into the ones that I do,

and the eyesight to tell the difference.

I turn 45 years old next month, but there are still days when I feel like I rank right up there with the ripened.

I prefer the joke about Irish folk and Alzheimer's disease:

An Irish person with Alzheimer's will forget everything but a grudge.

How true.
