What I did two days ago. What I wore to work yesterday. My student ID number. What I went into the other room to get.
What do all these things have in common? They're all things I cannot remember.
Marilyn and Carolyn Arnold. Buddy, Suzi and Marnie Barrett. Myriah and Gabby Perkins. Jamie Newton. Amanda and Max Delaney. Charlotte Johanssen. Jenny Prezzioso. Shea, Jackie and Archie Rodowsky. Adam, Byron, Jordan, Vanessa, Nicky, Margo and Claire Pike. Becca Ramsey.
What do all these things have in common? They are all things I can remember and have remembered for at least 20 years.
The names of all the clients of the Baby-Sitters Club.
The post title?
Their phone number. For meetings. Which I remembered in about .000006 seconds. Without looking it up. Meetings were held every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 5:30 until 6 p.m.
I recalled the other day that the first time I ever heard the word "decorum" was in a Baby-Sitters Club book. In fact, it was Kristy's Great Idea. She had to write an essay on it for school because she lacked it.
No wonder I have no room in my brain for literally anything else.
