I've come to the conclusion that i have no control over what my brain decides to 'hold onto' and what 'fades into oblivion'......I like to think i hold onto the good things in life and let go of the not so good...But like i said i really don't think i have control over that. But i'm generally a happy person..... a glass half full kinda gal. :)
I can't tell you about the things i've forgotten because...well.... I've forgotten them. But i can tell you about a few of the silly things i do remember for no apparent reason.......
Hubby needs a plant hanger at his work. This man has a green thumb that neither one of us knew he had! Look at those plants! When was the last time you looked for a plant hanger at the store? Do you know how difficult they are to find these days? Does no one hang their plants anymore? I did find some on Etsy but for me the prices were a little steep.
I had two years of Spanish in high school......30 some odd years ago..ahem.....I barely managed to pass them.....My wonderful powers of memorization was the only think that saved me...... I cannot hold a conversation in Spanish but i still have many words and phrases memorized..... Why? I don't know........ Its not like i've had opportunity to practice over the years......but its there taking up valuable real estate in my brain..... I can count in Spanish.....I can say the alphabet in Spanish...I can say the Pledge of Allegiance in Spanish.....I know all the words to 'La Cucaracha' and can sing 'We Wish you a Merry Christmas' in Spanish.Why?Why does my brain hold onto such things...? Any odd things that just stick in your brain? :) Hugs! deb
PS... I'm linking with Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday.......and if you all are looking for something liquid in this post look at the picture of my hubby......look at the shelf above his desk....look close.... you will see a 5 hr energy drink..........its the best i could do... :)
