Selective Memory Loss
Last night, I made it to 2 of the 3 parties. Both events were quite festive with lots of fun people to talk to. But with 1am approaching, thought it best to call it a night.
In reflecting on the night, can’t help but think I suffer from selective (or not so selective) memory loss. I use to think it only applied to things in my past I didn’t want to remember, but I’m now having my doubts. In talking to one of the people at the party who was a huge hockey fan, I mentioned that I went to a Chicago Blackhawks game last Friday night. When she proceeded to grill me about what happened at the game, I couldn’t really provided her with details. I couldn’t even say with certainty who the Blackhawks played. I blamed it on watching the game from a skybox. Then when another gal complimented me on the barrette I was wearing in my hair, I mentioned that I had originally purchased it earlier in year to wear at the Green Tie Ball. But then I couldn’t even remember where the Ball was held or who the sponsor of the event was. What is up with that? Both of these are cheery memories. Its one thing to forget the awful stuff, but it’s completely different to not remember the happy memories. So maybe it’s a good thing I’m doing this blog. I want to be able to better recall my own personal history.
