Today’s question is: Why are some things so hard to remember??
Background: I find it so odd that I can remember some things and not others. As I’ve mentioned before I’m a birthday savant. Seriously, I remember all these birthdays of people I haven’t seen in 20 years. The birthdays just don’t want to leave my brain.
I remember other things too. Weird things. Like what you may have said to me verbatim 7 years ago about your friend. I find you looking at me weird when I bring up the odd fact I remember about your life, that seriously, you don’t even remember.
My mother in law passed away in the beginning of April. When she died pw and his brother were trying to figure out where they were going to bury her. When pw told me I said, “well, why wouldn’t you just bury her with your dad and sister since you bought 3 plots when your dad died?” His response was “we did?”. Why would I remember this when his brother and he couldn’t? Isn’t that strange. And it’s a vivid memory for me, vivid.
Memories are strange things aren’t they?
Now if I could only remember what I walked into the kitchen for, I’d have it made.
