Memory Card Corrupt?


We watched a movie last week, at the end the bad guy was trying to get away in the cutest, 4 seater, twin engine, airplane. It was all stainless steel and I kept saying how much I liked the shape. I said "I love it, it looks just like.... just like..... You know! the little camper that is all shiny and round and smooth, but it is a plane not a camper.   (neither one of us can remember the name of the movie)

Neither of us could think of the name of the RV. Fast forward to next morning, while drinking coffee Bob said I know what the camper is... Jet stream.... NO! but that is close.

Driving to the YMCA, I yelled AIR STREAM...  
 
It only took 2 of us 9 hours to come up with the word.
But really we were asleep 7 of those..

I said to Bob, my brain is like an 8 ball, waiting for the word to float to the top.


He said Mine is like that thing they turn round and round and take out a number and someone yells BINGO





I have come to the conclusion that our memory cards are corrupt and I am hoping they can be reformatted.

Hello Sandra, I can relate! My hubby said his new doc yesterday gave him a memory test, I think he failed.
It would be nice if we could just have our memories reformatted. Enjoy your day!

Sounds worth a try. Good luck!

Best,

LOL!
John and I often do the same thing and also when I am talking to my sis by phone. Sometimes it will be days later, when the "word" comes to us!

Very funny! We also have the same problem but don't always find the word in the end. Lost in cyberspace I mean brainspace. I often wish we had a rewind button or a delete button.

LOL....It is always nice to know that my memory card isn't the only one corrupted!!

I too can relate. When we lived in a Condo a guy had one there. It was similar to what your showing but a longer. He had a old tanker of an Oldsmobile pulling it.

He wore beige dress suit with a straw hat. Can you picture him?

That's going back.

Like your post.

If you learn how to reformat, please inform all of us as to how it is done!

I think you remembered pretty fast, actually! Interesting idea to reformat our "memory cards." Only YOU would think of that, Sandra. ;)

Madi and Mom said...

I THINK MAYBE YOU AND BOB ARE KIN TO US. WE AGONIZE OVER NAMES OF FOLKS IN MOVIES OR THINGS LIKE NAMES A LOT. IF THE AGONY STARTS EARLY DAY WE MIGHT HAVE IT BY BEDTIME OTHERWISE I GOOGLE IT.

Good luck with that!!!
Last noght when the waitress left our check at the table, I got out my credit card and looked at the check and could not see where to add the tip. I circled the % suggested at the bottom and when she came by, I told her I didn't see where to add that. She said, "That's because you hadn't given me your credit card yet." I have paid thousands of tabs at restaurants and fully understand the procedure! For some reason my brain had a glitch and all that experience was GONE! Hopefully I will remember how to do it today when I go out to eat with Ruth Ann and we get our nails done!!

Gail said...

I understand.

It seems that our only conversation is a guessing game: What were we going to say? Why did I come in here? What was the name of that movie, you know the one with the guy that...?

I fear from here it will only get worse.

Ann said...

Isn't it funny how you try and try to think of something with no luck and hours or days later out of the blue it will just come to you. If you figure out how to reformat let me know because I think I need to do the same

DeniseinVA said...

I know I have said it before but I love the conversations you have with Bob.

Betty Manousos said...

sounds worth a try. good luck with that!

Rebecca said...

hahahaha! Hilarious.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Too funny, but I do love when the answer pops into our heads!

Ida said...

Man you guys crack me up!

pattisjarrett said...

I'm still wondering the name of the movie! Please let me know when you figure it out. :)

Deb said...

Love it! Was it the longest trail or with Lucy and Desi?
