Forgot an English word… should I worry? — 4 Comments

  1. Nope, after 30 years you’ve turned Japanese, for which I envy you no end. Anyway, “anzu” is way cooler sounding than Apricot! Well done you!

  2. Normal 50s Dementia. I do it quite often. Of course not the foreign language part, just normal words. My husband and I laugh about it because I’ll remember at 2 am and I’ll tap him on the shoulder, tell him the word and he’ll say “Oh yeah!”.

    It’s kind of funny. So now you are old like me!

  3. What Nancy said – welcome to the world of us older folks.

    I like to envision my memory as a huge, Raiders-Of-The-Lost-Ark type warehouse. With the passing of years the warehouse has to hold more and more stuff, so it’s not too surprising that a small thing like a particular word might be temporarily misplaced.

  4. I think I prefer Rosalie’s reply (that after 30 years I’ve turned Japanese) to “50’s dementia.” 🙂
