the leaves have pretty shapes

this joke was old the moment it was first told:

i was taking gingko biloba pills to improve my memory.
but i kept forgetting to take them.

gah! there are so many variations on this and i suspect i have heard them all over the past few years. at first i laughed politely. then i started smiling wanly.

me: yeah, my dad took those for a while after his stroke.

then the other person kindly changes the subject. sorry, dad.
