Grandad, do you have problems remembering things?
I do. Names in particular. I have to make lists of all the nieces, grand nieces, nephews and grand nephews and learn them by heart.
You always get my name right.
Well, it's the same as your mother's and her mothers.
I get into trouble at school if I forget things.
Oh those awful maths things and the names in science. Really grim stuff.
The brain usually works less well as you get older.
So why 'older and wiser'?
Because of experience I suppose.
I know some really stupid old people who sit in front of the TV all day.
And there are those who turn on the TV. They are even worse!
I say older and more boring. Except you Grandad. You are acceptably old.
Thank you. I'll try and keep things like that.
