Wednesday's Word: Slippage

Ok, not really my word. It’s an investment/stock term and I won’t bore you with that definition, especially when mine is so much better.

We slip with age…the memory first, and the rest follows shortly after. Therefore the term slippage is appropriate.

You’ll know when it happens. No need to be concerned if you can’t remember where you left your car keys but if you can’t remember where you left your car…seek help.

If you call your child by another’s name, don’t worry. But if you can’t remember which one is your child…you get my point.

Be warned. It sneaks up on you. One day you can recite the phone numbers of every friend you ever had, then the next you’re up all night on Facebook trying to remember who half those damn people are.

Slippage sucks. And that, my friends, is the Word.


  1. Dude--I hear you. Add revision brain to aging and yeah, my slippage is out of control! :)

  2. Your definition is so much better!!!:D

    Yup, not remembering which child is yours, is definitely a sign...;)

  3. LOL!!! I read an interesting article about nuns who were "diagnosed" with Alzheimers.(sp) They put them all on Gluten Free diets and 80% of them cleared right up. I guess a gluten allergy can build up over time and take you down in ways you never thought possible!

  4. Yes, so with you. The worst thing for me is trying to remember my own phone number. Or age. Or where I left my phone.


It helps to know I'm not just talking to myself.
