My dad (who had some form of memory loss - they thought Alzheimer's, but
after he passed away, they were able to do a test that showed that that
wasn't what it was) always said "memory's the second thing to go."
He was never able to recall the first - at least, that was the joke. :)
Memories are strange things. I can remember weird details from my youth
that were inconsequential - my employee number at the store I worked at
when I was a teenager, for example - burned into my brain for some reason.
But I was trying to think of the name of a TV programme earlier today,
and it was just gone. I had to look it up. If I hadn't, it would have
bothered me all night.
