Last night I sat down to dinner and began to eat. Then, I realized that we had forgotten to pray. But why? Our family has been praying before we eat longer than I can remember but some days we still forget. You'd think we would have that pattern grounded into our minds. Maybe we are an especially absentminded family. I can never remember names, either. They just seem to refuse to stick in my mind. Occasionally I forget to feed my pets until it gets late, even though feeding them at 7:00 ought to be a rock solid habit!
And yet I can remember the word for 100 in Lithuanian, simtas. P.S. This is my one hundredth blog post! Also, I will never be able to forget the line, "Across the pale parabola of joy." Raltson McTodd (P.G.Wodehouse) even though I don't know what it means. (Perhaps a Rainbow?) Plus I will always remember (nearly) every line of The Princess Bride.
Our brains pick the weirdest things to remember. Or at least mine does!
