I have a horrible memory.
This is just one of the reason’s I call people Dude and Chick.
This horrible memory is evident when looking for people on Facebook but in other areas this bad memory can be a good thing. I often don’t remember what I have blogged and when I go back to read I have so much fun reading what I had written. I just noticed I’ve blogged something twice… Crap!
I guess I’ve always known my memory is bad and must be why I write things down. For example all the cute things Mini Red did that I wrote anywhere and I’m finding all over the place now. I guess I should get a bit more organized with my notes. I used to carry a little spiral pad of paper and I’m thinking I should do that again.
When it comes to movies I often forget the details. Mini Red and I just sat down to watch “Head over Heels”. I knew it was a cute movie but as it went on I realized I couldn’t remember what happened. So it was like I was watching it for the first time. I’m my own movie critic… I know it’s a cute movie but I don’t really remember it so why not sit down and enjoy it again?
I can’t tell you how many books I’ve read that become movies. I never remember the end and comparing the book to the movie is just not happening most of the time unless I read the book just before the movie came out.
I do remember faces though. Often I see someone familiar and can’t place them or remember their names. This happened a lot when I was on Match. I then realized where I’ve seen them and their Match picture pops in my head. This is why I rarely approach a familiar face.
So if you see me on the street, stop me and say, “Hi” because I, most likely, won’t stop you.
