What Is Your Name?

Two elderly ladies had been friends for many decades. Over the years, they had shared all kinds of activities and adventures.
Lately, their activities had been limited to meeting a few times aweek to play cards. One day, they were playing cards when one looked at the other and said, "Now don't get mad at me ... I know we've been friends for a long time ...but I just can't think of your name! I've thought and thought, but I can't remember it. Please tell me what your name is." Her friend glared at her. For at least three minutes she just stared and glared at her.
Finally she said, "How soon do you need to know?"


Enjoy!

yeah, the memory or attention span is pretty bad when find yourself trying to use your portable telephone to change the tv stations and it takes you a few minutes to figure out that you don't need to change the batteries after all

It gets even worse when you have to remember both your name AND your password. :D

I was in a hurry to microwave a cup of water while I was doing too much other stuff. The cup wouldn't fit! It was the drawer filled with microwave popcorn! LOL
