Whose Aging Brain is it Anyway?

Superbowl party.

Relatives, all over 50, trying to remember who the current host of the Price is Right is.

One offers "Andrew Dice Clay...no, it isn't it."
We all have that "tip of the mind" feeling.

Other names flow.
Hugh Grant.
Jim Carrey.

We go through lists of first names.  Nothing.  We run through tricks that help us remember.  Nothing.

Finally, I run to the computer.
Drew Carey!

It's funny how all those other names we were thinking of had an element of the name.  Jim Carrey. Andrew Dice Clay (as in Drew being a nickname for "Andrew".)

Isn't aging wonderful.  Not.
