i have realized that as i grow older, my memory gets worse. i know this is normal for most people, but i'm not that old yet, so why have i forgotten so much already? my theory is that i have so much to remember in my life – doctor appointments, dentist appointments, when is it teddy bear day at school?, when is that library book due?, is it friday yet?, has eva taken her medication?, has henry handed in his homework?, etc., etc., etc. – that i don't have enough brain capacity to remember exactly when the war of 1812 occurred (i kid.) (it was 1812, right?) so the really important things in life are almost always remembered, but what i learned in 4th grade is pretty much out the window. (except the golden rule, i will always remember the golden rule.)
however, as i was driving the other day, i happened to turn on the "oldies" station. and i put oldies in quotes, because in my book, oldies are elvis and the beatles and johnny cash, not duran duran and madonna. but, as i was listening, pour some sugar on me by def leppard came on, and sure enough, i knew every single word.*
so maybe there should be a school that teaches everything to music. i think that's a brilliant idea, plus it would make school so much more fun.
have a great weekend!!
* the title of this post was going to be "i'm hot, sticky sweet – from my head to my feet", but i opted for a better line from their song.
