Senior Moments

A Senior Moment is, to elderly people, those times when, due to lapses of memory or attention, they do something silly. My older relations were the first I've heard use this expression. It is rare for a new usage to come from the elderly, as slang almost always starts with young people and then percolates into the mainstream.

Even weirder, there is now a product that supposedly enhances memory in the elderly that uses the name Senior Moment(tm):

It seems odd to me to name a product for the condition it is meant to alleviate.
