I'm nowhere near fifty but I remember reading this book by Bill Cosby called 'Time flies' on this subject. He mentions having a conversation with a friend, over coffee. Someone interrupts him. When he's about to resume his conversation, he can't remember what he talking about. He asks his friend but he can't remember either! An excellent book, a humorous take at the ageing process that we all must go through, if we live long enough.
