I have a bad memory. Every day seems new to me.
Posted by nothing profound
If I remember correctly I have made this observation too from time to time. A lousy memory can be a real blessing at times. It makes me a world class audience. I laugh over and over at the same old jokes even if I remember it half-way through, just because the person telling it is having fun. I can enjoy the same great movies time after time. "City of Angels" is one of those. I enjoy the love story so much that I forget there will be a tragic death at the end. I forget that people owe me money (when it is a small sum) and I forget personal slights for the most part.
That forgetfulness may be one reason why I am almost always in a good mood. I'm sure not going to take a memory course any time soon!
