809. The slippery slope of age isn’t all downhill. There are some stopovers.

I watched the video of various stars singing “God Only Knows” three times yesterday and twice today because I forgot the last 4 digits of my cell phone number at the drug store yesterday.

What does one thing have to do with the other? I’ll tell you.

In order to pick up my prescription I had to fill in those numbers. I was expecting it to be my home number but instead they asked for my cell phone.  I froze. I couldn’t remember them. I finally thought I knew them and typed in the last 4 numbers of Julie’s cell.

When they were rejected I could see the pity in the eyes of the girl that was helping me.

I pulled myself together and recited my whole number in my head and I put the correct numbers in.

My nose drops were released to my custody.

I said “Thank you”.

The girl answered “You’re welcome.” and as an after thought she added “Be well”

I left the store cringing.

Now the video.

“God Only Knows” by the Beach Boys is one of my favorite songs and the new video by various artists is wonderful.(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XqLTe8h0-jo).

When I got home I went on Facebook and saw a post by my cousin’s husband of that video. I had posted that same thing a few days before.

I was feeling low so I watched it again.

I realized that I knew many of the people singing. Not just the ones you’d expect me to know like Elton John or Chrissie Hynde or Dave Grohl, I also knew Florence Welch and Lorde and Pharrell Williams and even One Direction.

I immediately felt better. My brain was getting mushy but not totally liquid yet.

BTW who’s the babe on the horse? It looks like Rosanne Barr.

  1. Who frigging dials their own cell number? unless their phone is vacationing in the couch and you are trying to find it.

    I’m 35 and I don’t know the number to my own cell!
