Patricia Marx is a former writer for Saturday Night Live and Rugrats. She's a contributor to The New Yorker.
And she's afraid she's losing her mind.
"There were just so many moments of, 'What's that thing that you put the thing in that's got the thing that, you know, that what is it called?' " Marx tells NPR's Arun Rath.
"I was really worried that in a matter of days, I was going to need a caregiver and the caregiver was going to find the butter dish in my sock drawer."
