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.

I get into trouble at school if I forget things.

The brain usually works less well as you get older.

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.
