My memory used to be so sharp. I memorized people's birthdays, phone numbers, class schedules, all without even trying. I could hear something once and remember it forever.
Now it's just in one ear, out the other. What happened? Old age?
Take, for instance, tonight. I had a great blog post idea... something I could sit down and type out in a few minutes... something that my readers would enjoy (I thought)...
But then I realized I needed to send an important text. It took me a few minutes to write the text, proofread, edit, and send... and by then I had completely forgotten what I was going to blog about.
I tried and tried and tried to remember.
I retraced my steps.
I retraced my thoughts.
But, alas, it is forgotten.
So that is it. The end of my story.
