365 Senior Moments You'd Rather Forget
Karen O’Connor, bestselling author of Gettin’ Old Ain’t for Wimps (more than 300,000 copies sold), offers a great collection of humorous anecdotes on senior moments. Readers in the better half of life will discover 365 rather funny situations to avoid, with some of them sounding all too familiar. They are encouraged to avoid…
- leaving the key in the front door and going to sleep feeling secure.
- purchasing a book to improve your memory but leaving it at the checkout counter.
- dropping the boat anchor and then realizing it wasn’t tied to the boat.
This warmhearted and playful book encourages laughter and taking life in stride.
“With her usual trademark humor, Karen O’Connor has compiled a treasure of real-life amusing moments, guaranteed to tickle your funny bone and to assure you that these hilarious mishaps can happen to anybody. Taken in stride, we can recall them not as embarrassments, but as embellishments on life’s lighter side. I even loved the book cover, depicting a woman sporting both a blue and a brown shoe! How many women have worn two different shoes to the same event?! (I'm raising my hand!) Whatever your shoes look like, put them on and run to your nearest bookstore, or let your fingers do the shopping online, and get this book. Everybody deserves a laughter break, especially you!”
—Lynn D. Morrissey, author of Love Letters to God: Deeper Intimacy through Written Prayer, speaker, soloist, and journal facilitator
“In the short, pithy, right-to-the-heart style that is so typical of Karen O’Connor’s writing, this delightful author has ‘zinged’ her readers again with scenarios that are so ‘been-there, done-that’ in our own lives that we all relate—even as we howl with laughter. I plan to get copies of this powerful little book for all the ‘fellow seniors’ in my life!

“365 Senior Moments You'd Rather Forget is not only hilarious, but it's also a comfort because it helps me to see that I'm not alone with my senior moments. It brings me such joy every single time I read this book. I will have this book on my coffee table for a very long time and I plan on ordering several more copies for gifts. I even keep a copy in my purse so that I can have fun while I wait in line. This is a must read and I give it 5 stars! Karen hit the jackpot again with this little gem.”
“You are sure to find some giggle worthy moments recounted in this book, and I suggest it as a gift for your friends and relatives who are of ‘a certain age’ and who have a sense of humor about aging.”

“In a book small enough to fit in your pocket or purse, Karen O'Connor has once again written a humorous book that focuses on those senior years—and the memories (or lack of them) that accompany over the hill living. Her book is a fun collection of familiar goofs and laugh-out-loud moments that will keep the older generation smiling and feeling like they are definitely among friends. Another idea? Great resource book for speakers to use at senior conferences or other events.”
