100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week#46

June 21, 2012

Why is it? When I need to remember the Sanskrit alphabet; verbs or nouns,  even those I have revised every night for months.  Or various conjugations and paradigms learned like parrot each day for a year.  When researching the subtle differences between feminine, masculine and neuter.  Or I wish to learn the meaning of a particular word, only yesterday I added to my vocabulary list. I have to delve into the dark recess of my mind.
Yet when I hear two bars from a pop song played on the radio in 1959 I can remember every note, word and the position it held in the top twenty.

    Why indeed? Very clever and oh so true, it must resonate with many.

    hahaha, isn’t it always the way. If I could remember academia the way I remember trivia I’d be a genius.
