Grandma & Grampa are sitting there watching TV when Grandpa decides he’s hungry for some ice cream.

“Hey, Grandma – I’m going to the kitchen and get myself a dish of ice cream. You want I should get you some, too?”

“Sure, Grandpa, sounds good. But you better write down what you’re going out there for or else you’ll forget.” replies Grandma.

“I will not!” retorts Grandpa. “In fact, tell me what you want on it and I’ll show you I can remember that, too.”

“OK,” says Grandma, “I’ll have some chocolate sauce. But you’re going to forget…”

Grandpa heads out to the kitchen and disappears for about 20 or 30 minutes, accompanied by a cacaphonous banging of pots and pans.

Finally he emerges, carrying a plate of scrambled eggs.

“See there, Grandpa. I told you you’d forget!” chides Grandma.

“What do you mean, ‘forget,’ Grandma? What did I forget?” demands Grandpa.

“You fool,” says Grandma. “You forgot my bacon!”
