There are other things that I wish I remembered better. Things that I think I should know, but I don't. I wish I remembered my great-grandmother, but the only thing I can recall about her is hearing about her death while I was coloring Shirinky-Dinks. I wish I remembered our old dog Bingo. I wish I remembered what my favorite meal of Monte Cristo sandwich and chocolate mousse from the now-gone restaurant The Magic Pan tasted like. I wish I remembered what I wore for Halloween every year, but I only remember select ones and ones that were captured on film. One of my largest regrets is not remembering more details of my first kiss. I wish I remembered more conversations I've had with my parents, friends, etc. I wish I could remember ALL the stories and characters that my mind has churned out over the years, but they blend together and are lost if I don't write them down. Sometimes I'll look through an old notebook and find a list of characters and characteristics and I don't remember what their actual story was supposed to be.
But mostly right now? I wish I could remember where I put those important tax forms I need to fill out.
