It seems as if I’ve been awfully forgetful as of late. For example, I keep forgetting that Dolly Parton is playing December 12 in Sacramento, or that Paul McCartney is appearing at the . Then there’s that new band, Alter Bridge, which is made up of former Creed members minus the baggage. I just can’t keep it all straight.

I didn’t used to have problems remembering things. Oh, sure, I may have forgotten a few things, like my wedding anniversary or putting the lid down when I’m finished, but everybody’s a little forgetful.

Gosh, I wish I could remember.

My friends say it’s a sign of age. I dunno. I used to remember all the important stuff, like where Little Feat is playing next week, or the new dates for Manic Street Preachers and the . Yeah, I used to remember all that. But did I mention that I’m having memory problems and that some things seem to slip through my… my… uh… fingers?

I don’t know if I’ve told you this before, but I’ve been having memory problems, and I’ve been forgetting the important stuff, like buckle up for safety, always flush when you’re done, and Keith Urban playing in Indiana in October. Like, what’s Indiana? Is that something I need to remember?

Oh, did I mention that I’ve been having memory… That I’m having memory… That I’m having… Oh, forget it.
