A woman’s body shape may influence how good her memory is, according to US researchers. Although carrying excess weight anywhere appears to impair older women’s brains, carrying it on the hips may make matters worse, they say.
I know it’s true. Yesterday the wife was working her way through a large packet of chocolate buttons whilst watching ‘Big Brother’ on the TV.
”I thought you were supposed to be on a diet.”
”I forgot,” she mumbled.
Seizing my chance I drew her attention to the US research about fat old women becoming mentally impaired, especially those women with big hips.
She said that she’d forgotten how sensitive I could be.
Then she forgot to make my dinner.
Later she forgot I was in the bathroom and turned off the light.
In the dark I stepped on the soap, fell out of the bath and, on the way down, caught my wedding tackle on the taps.
When I asked the wife what she was laughing about she said it was a joke she’d been told on her wedding day.
Those US researchers are clever bastards.
