My wife roared as soon as I entered home: “I told you to buy tomatoes. You have returned with potatoes.” An intense argument followed. She shouted. I yelled. And we both enjoyed it.
But, seriously, I have no complaints about poor memory. It has helped me forget unpleasant incidents. Those days when my dad used to bash me up for poor marks, those days when Chennai newspapers rejected my job applications forcing me to move to Mumbai, those days when that gorgeous girl cried after I got married to another woman (hehe..imagination is my birthright)…the list will be endless.
Founder of the U.S. Red Cross Clara Barton, who never bore grudges, was once reminded by a friend of a wrong done to her some years earlier. "Don't you remember?" asked her friend. "No," replied Clara. "I distinctly remember forgetting that." (Thanks: Pawprints)
Albert Schweitze was perfectly right when he said, “Happiness is nothing more than good health and a bad memory.”
