You know, Dory from Finding Nemo? The blue fish with the short term memory loss?
Dory! said my hubby after he arrived home from playing a nice relaxing round of golf. Why would you do that to yourself?
On the upside, sometimes short-term memory loss can come in handy. Like, if you tell me your secrets I promise I won't spread them. Your secrets are safe with me. I won't even remember what you've said in the morning. There may be a faint hazy echo of something, but not enough detail for any kind of juicy gossip. Scouts' Honour.
"Have you seen it yet??" I asked.
"Um, yes... actually I saw it with you, remember???"
See? Short-term memory loss!
So if I happen to forget your name / birthday / kids names / phone number / deep dark secrets please don't hold it against me. It's just one of my unavoidably annoying personality quirks, nothing personal against you at all.
Just put it down to my Dory-ness, and please forgive me.
P.S. I went to see Julie & Julia on Monday night with my friend Meg. It was great. So in case I forget... Julie & Julia was great. I saw it with Meg.
