To make a truly viscous gravy the proportions
are about two cups of liquid to three tablespoons of flour. I
mention this because of what I will from now on be referring to as "Age
Related Forgetfulness." It is a phrase that is both polite and forgiving
in same way that "Midriff Bulge" is both polite and forgiving.
"Age Related Forgetfulness" is
not a term I have come to embrace without considerable thought. "Can't
Remember Crap," for example is very depressing, as well as defeatist.
And wandering through an index unable to remember whether F comes before H
is just very, very sad.
