Memory Loss Or Rebirth?

I would like to wish you a very Happy Birthday. I had conjured a witty comment regarding your age earlier but, unfortunately, you’ll have to get by without it; I have forgotten both your age and the comment. A local bookstore owner and psychic suggests that this apparent memory loss is actually a deliberate function of the subconscious, intending to free one from ego-consciousness while easing one’s transition into the fourth dimension. Hopefully, I shall soon glimpse this new dimension but, in the meantime, am pleased to adopt the suggested interpretation; I offer you it for your consideration and perhaps as balm, in lieu of the witty comment lost in the ether.

Please excuse the delay. There’s many a slip twixt cusp and fingertip…

Yours was an entertaining and provocative response indeed, and, as it turned out, apropos. It reminds me of a revelatory paragraph on the essence of aging and its importance in life's grand strategy. I stumbled upon it in a home-library book some years ago (20?) yet, shortly thereafter, was unable to relocate it; in fact, I couldn’t even recall the book’s title! Perhaps I should have searched in the pudding too, where, it is frequently suggested, the proof can be found.
