Sometimes, funny things happen to people who are living with dementia. Let's celebrate them by sharing.
I few weeks ago, before lockdown, I decided to visit a fast food "drive thru" for a takeway chicken meal ( I still drive, although I have to re-register every year).
I drove around to the microphone-on-a-stick at the rear of the building, and gave the lady my order (I'd written it down in advance in case I forgot).
Pleased with myself, I then drove round the loop - there was no queue, and off towards home. Half way down the dual carriageway, I realised that I hadn't paid for or picked up my order! Well, I drove back and sheepishly presented myself to the staff, who thought the whole event was really funny and had kept my order in the hotbox awaiting my inevitable return. And I have toadmit, it WAS funny! I was so pleased with myself for ordering successfully, that I'd completely forgotten the next steps in the process of obtaining a drive thru meal.
