Girl, approximately 10 years old, walking into the grocery store with her dad: "Do you think I have a photographic memory?"

(My parents are cracking up right now, because this is so something I would have asked.)

Her dad: "No."

Girl: "Why not?"

Dad: "Well, do you remember everything from... [inaudible]?"

Girl: "Yes, I do. I remember the... thing. And the other thing."

She clearly did not remember whatever it was her dad had just asked about. 

I feel like this girl and my 10 year old self are/were kindred spirits.
