Husband and wife have been to see a doctor about their apparent loss of memory. The doctor suggests they start writing things down.
Back home wife says to husband, “Will you get me some ice-cream? You had better write it down.”
Husband, “No need to write it down – some ice cream.”
Wife, “Yes but I also want it with strawberries. Write it down.”
Husband, “No need to write it down – ice cream and strawberries.”
Wife, “Better write it down because I also want it with cream.”
Husband, now getting cross, “I don’t need to write it down – I can remember, you want some ice-cream with strawberries and cream.”
Husband comes back with bacon and eggs.
Wife to husband, “Where’s the toast?”
