I stumbled into a very positive news suitable for the beginning of the new year, especially for those who're now in the middle age like me, and started to wonder why you suddenly found it difficult to remember new things or can't utter names of the things you were quite familiar with.
I've been terribly forgetful and caused many many big troubles, the worst one happened when I was working for a securities company. I was responsible for quite a big amount of money, I have to check the balance sheet of about 100 accounts of the company at different banks, and I, two or three times, forgot to balance the account at the end of a day... you see, it's securities company, so I'm not talking about one thousand yen or one million yen, I'm talking about one thousand million yen... If the account is closed with minus, then the company are made to borrow some money and have to pay big interest even for a day. I'll never ever be able to compensate the loss with my small salary. I always thought I was undoubtedly misplaced in that section.
okay, enough for my old days story.
I assure you that you won't be annoyed any more with the decay of your brain power once you read this article from the New York Times.
Oh..., my partner came down stairts. I forgot to have asked him to go shopping with me by car... 've got to go ^^;
