Oh, yeah! For sure!
There are just some things in life you have to handle preemptively. For quite a while, whenever my kids would say cute or funny stuff, it would strike me as WAY TOO HILARIOUS TO EVER FORGET. So I would file the funniest thing ever away in my head for later.
Hahaha. The joke was on me, because usually all I would remember was that I was supposed to remember something funny. And then I’d kick my own ass for overestimating my memory capacity and swear next time I would remember to write that s*#t down. But, I have the kind of ADHD that makes goldfish look like deep thinkers. So, that went well.
Anyway, you’ll probably really need to be able to look these memories up in about 9 1/2 years for the sake of your sanity, and to remind you things weren’t always like this.
Fourteen’s a bitch.
(on the bright side, my daughter is 16 now and we have emerged from whatever the hell kind of possessed she’s been the past couple of years and she’s awesome. More awesome, even. And, now, SHE is the one posting stupid stuff I do on social media, getting laughs at my expense. See, it’s all about BALANCE. Now the Universe is happy.)
