Once again, yet again . . . wait for it . . . again. The word is right on the tip of my tongue, but AWOL when I need it. My daughter stares patiently as I stammer, desperately search for the word I NEED, only to finally use a random word that comes as close as I'm capable of producing at that very moment.
Yep. It's mush-mouth time for Mom.
Thinking through the alphabet ultimately brings the missing word to mind, but by that time I'm mortified at yet another sign of hormone- and age- induced brain freeze.
Research says that logic-based play improves memory and keeps the mind sharp well into the senior years. Knitting falls into the category of good-for-you for its patterns, counting, organization, and envisioning.
But it isn't working. Or is it? Does this mean that without knitting I'd be a complete idiot rather than a random sputterer?
