FUNNY THING THE HUMAN BRAIN!
Tonight while making dinner I decided to listen to some music. Now I was in a funny mood and didn't fancy any of the usual cds scattered around the kitchen so I went through a pile of really old things and happened upon an old Simon and Garfunkel tape I hadn't listened to since I was an English assistant in France in 1987. Feeling nostalgic, I stuck it on and sang along word for word...why is it that your brain remembers song lyrics for 19 years word perfect but when you try to remember what you are meant to be working on in, say, the office, it is impossible even after a break of just a weekend? ;-)
