A lighthearted look at the lapses that come with aging—even for geniuses . . . Did you know that Albert Einstein once searched frantically for his misplaced train ticket because he couldn't remember where he was going? Or that Marilyn Monroe forgot the same line through fifty-two takes during the filming of Some Like it Hot? Can you believe that Marlon Brando had to have his lines written on another actor's forehead so he could get through a scene? If you have done something like this, don't despair, for you are among other greats like Lincoln, Beethoven, Newton, Toscanini, and a whole assortment of presidents, poets, philosophers, popes, and Nobel Prize winners. Old age isn't for wimps, nor is it for those without a sense of humor. The Big Book of Senior Moments is chock full of those small blunders, momentary lapses, and misplaced keys that happen to all of us. Humor might not help you remember your cat's name, but it will certainly make you feel less alone!
