Water bottles

Last night, while I was in the shower, I had the following bit of conversation with Andrew. Somehow, in talking about the weekend at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, the subject of water bottles came up.

Me: Well, plastic water bottles will give you cancer.
Andrew: Yeah.
Me: So I got an aluminum one. You know, they say the aluminum ones will give you ... um .... uhhh... what's the word...?
Andrew: (Blank look)
Me: ... Alzheimer's!
Andrew: (Falls down laughing)

While
Alzheimer's isn't funny, apparently, not remembering the name of the disease is.
