The forgetful couple

There was an elderly couple who in their old age noticed that they were getting a lot more forgetful, so they decided to go to the doctor. The doctor told them that they should start writing things down so they don’t forget.

When they got home, the old woman asked her husband to get her some orange juice. “You might want to write it down,” she said. The husband said, “No, I can remember that you want some orange juice”

So he goes to get the orange juice and spends an unusually long time in the kitchen, over 40 minutes. He comes out to his wife and hands her a┬áplate with a cup of tea. The old wife stares at the plate for a moment, then looks at her husband and asks, “Where are the biscuits?”

He then goes back to the kitchen and returns with some chocolates. She lets out a sigh and says: “You forgot the nuts.”

The poor old man returns to the kitchen with the plate and doesn’t return for 50 mins. His wife was about to go and check on him when he finally appeared from behind the door carrying a plate of lasagna. She then asked him: “Where is the coke?”
