Memory Test

August 22, 2007


Each year there are a handful of things I mean to do or events I mean to attend—and each one of these things falls aside because I have a dwarf-sized memory. Actually, my memory is pretty good right now and I hope that doesn’t change. In fact, during high school I was able to memorize […]
