Honest, Abe?

This should show you how distracted I've been lately.

A few days ago, I saw an article online mentioning how this year is the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth, and I briefly thought, "Hey, I should see when his exact date of birth was, so I can post about it on my 'Lair of the Silver Fox' blog."

Immediately after thinking that, I said to myself, "Abraham Lincoln's exact date of birth? DUH! That would probably be February 12th, the holiday we called "Lincoln's Birthday" all through your so-called formative years, you freakin' dummy!"

Hell, not only did I suffer that mental lapse, but it took me a few more seconds to realize that I'd already done a 200th birthday post about ol' Honest Abe!

Damn that Alzheimer's.

Thanks for your... your... ummm... I forget.

  6. New research shows that 28 alcoholic bevvies a week helps prevent alzheimers. Doesn't do much for your liver but you'll remember shit!
