Memory Aids

We understand, Chris. We're all getting older. THose little memory slips seem to crop up all the time, don't they?

Fortunately there are lots of little things you can do to keep the old memory bank in the pink. Allow DIH to make a few suggestions.

1. Make lists. I know it sounds like a no-brainer (ha! little brain-death humor there), but good old-fashioned lists really do work. Like a "To-Do" list for today:

Take meds
Dentist appointment
"Harball" tonight!
Remember the President is black.

See? Simple, but effective.

2. Tie a string around your finger. Or try some variation of this: switch your wristwatch to your left writs, turn your wedding ring around, shave your head and don a 'do rag. That way every time you look in the mirror you can remind ourself: the President is black.

3. Mnemonic devices are also very handy. Try one like this:
Bailouts, lying, Alito nailed it, cap and trade, kill babies.
See? Covers The One's first year in office, and the first letters spell out b-l-a-c-k. Really you can have a lot of fun with these.
