so, i like to repeat myself

burton: "bergen-op-zoom!" [random street name from my home town -- thanks to a very odd mayor who dressed like captain hook during parades... of course]

me: "how come you remember stuff like that, but not important stuff?"

[uncomfortable pause, during which i realize that's not really true... and maybe a little mean]

me [again]: "wait, you remember important stuff. but i mean, you remember my childhood memories, and you don't even remember your own."

burton: "because you tell me your childhood memories 600 times."

[doh]

ryan and i had the opposite experience on sunday:
Ryan: "how did you get that scar?"
Me: "i've told you a million-trillion times."
Ryan: "what? i've never heard that story."
Me: "Why do you ask about my memories when you don't tuck them away? I feel like i live with Dorie from Nemo..."

I like it when you blog. And i need to email you back:).

May be a genetic thing. Brent says the same thing about me. He says I tell the same stories over and over again exactly the same way.

I have lived with Burton, and I know he says funny crap more often than once every 3 or 4 months. You need to pick up the pace here.
