Memory seems to be the first thing people complain about losing as they get older. But as the memory goes, certain things can become dangerous, for example, driving – as the two old ladies in this fictitious story prove.
Two elderly women, Marie & Edith, were out driving in a large car. Tiny and frail with age, neither of them could barely see over the dashboard.
As they were cruising along, they came to an intersection. The stoplight was red but they just went on through without a pause.
Edith, sitting in the passenger seat, thought to herself:
"I must be losing it, I could have sworn we just went through a red light."

After a few more minutes, they came to another large intersection and again the light was red and again they went right through.
This time, Edith was almost sure that the light had been red, but she was also really concerned that she might just be losing it.
She was starting to get nervous by now and decided to pay very close attention to the road and the next intersection to see what was going on.

At the next intersection, sure enough, the light was definitely red and they went right through. She turned to Marie and said:
"Marie! Did you know we just ran through three red lights in a row! You could have killed us!"
Marie turned to her and said:
"Oh, am I driving?"
Oops. Maybe it's time for these women to get a driver! Does this story sound familiar? Share it with your friends.
A senior woman who doesn't seem to have forgotten anything still does her own make-up routine every day, with stunning results.
Joann Hopkins, the 78-year-old mother of world-famous make-up artist Christopher Hopkins, still puts on a 'full face' every day.
"The Makeover Guy" shared a YouTube video of his mother's daily routine, calling her his inspiration after being fascinated while watching her do her face every day as he grew up.
Joann's before and after pictures show an amazing transformation that even "The Makeup Guy" would be proud of.
