doing something

doing something
what was it?
why was I doing it?
it’s not on my list
though something tells me I should figure it out and finish it before my wife figures out I’m not doing something and reminds me to be doing that something……

I could just ask her
there will be a funny look
and sarcasm
a joke about the mind going
I tell her the squirrels are lose in my head and I can’t remember what I was just doing but know we need to finish it up before calling it a night……

There is the look
and the joke
then the smile
that says everything
that she’ll always be here to remind me even when I’m really old and senile and forget why I started anything……

though she couldn’t remember what I was doing either…..
