Are you good at learning languages or memorizing facts?
Neither. Well, I am good at remembering trivia. I remember stories about history, entertainment and occasionally sports. (I remember that Kevin McHale was the Celtic player that was in an episode of “Cheers.” The opposing team Trival Pursuit team was disgusted.) The dates escape me on a regular basis.
My mom said I’ve always been good with names. She said it was helpful that I remembered because she could not remember names sometimes. I still know the names of all of the residents in the building. I also know how 95 % of them take their coffee. Very important information – names and coffee orders.
