Morty Applebaum has just turned 80 and his family are holding a party to celebrate the event. But talking to his children and grandchildren during the party, Morty realises for the first time that his memory is seriously in decline. This worries him greatly and so the following day, he goes to see doctor Levy.
"I'm really worried about how my age is beginning to affect my memory," Morty says to doctor Levy.
"In what specific way?" asks doctor Levy. "Can you give me an example?"
"Well," replies Morty, "my memory has always been very good indeed, but lately it's been failing me. I'm having a hard time remembering even basic things. For example, during my 80th birthday party yesterday, I couldn't even remember the names of my grandchildren, or where they lived. It's very worrying!"
"Well I wouldn't worry too much about it," says doctor Levy. "It sounds like you'll forget all about it tomorrow."
