And just to prove the point, as I was chatting with my husband and mother-in-law about how there's always some new research about coffee or alcohol and its supposed health benefits, I said, "I recently saw a news report about something that helps prevent Alzheimer's, but I can't remember what it is." It took a moment for me to get why everyone was laughing.
So, maybe that is why I try to capture all the little moments, because I will actually forget them. And also, I like pretty paper. Here's another small story from our road trip. Spending so much time together in close quarters was bound to cause some arguments and some inside jokes. And now in a few years, when someone says, "remeber 'shock?'" I probably will.
