I get that question pretty often from relatives or from anyone I might be talking to about my childhood… I have some really vivid, yet completely random memories about growing up. I can remember a few things as early as four years old… sort of like snapshot memories with a pretty descriptive subtitle.
And I can typically retain most of what I read these days, so I’m good for a quote or two. Its the same with movie lines. You might say some word, any word really, and it will instantly push a button in my brain that triggers a movie line, or a memory, or something else like that. But while I think about it, I’m horrible with directions (Lindsay is my little road map sitting shotgun), so I have a somewhat selective memory I guess.
But I’ve got nothing on this lady.
Would you consider this a blessing or a curse?
