A complete memory, WRONG!
Has this happened to anyone else?
Last night, I got home just to find that any entire set of memories from THAT day were WRONG!
OK, to explain, here is the full story.
Yesterday, I went to my parents house for a fantastic Mother's Day. We ate, did some swinging in the sunshine. (On a swing, from an oak tree)
Completely wholesome, soul uplifting sort of day.
Before I left my parent's house, (my other siblings and family had left) my mom asked me to look at something with her. She had bought me a bottle of
perfume, which we will call BH. ( It stands for Beyonce Heat, if you are just that curious.) We had tried out perfumes a few months before and I had
liked this one. I had told her a few days ago when she had called and asked that my husband wasn't a big fan of the scent. But she had already bought
it on a 2 for 1 special with her perfume (Beautiful).
Well she pulled it out and handed it to me and showed me hers. I held onto the BH the entire time and I walked back to the living room looking at the
label. I sat it next to my keys and the slice of cake I was taking home with me. A few moments later, I picked all of it up, and walked out the front
door. I said goodbye and gave kisses and hubby and I walked to the car. I put the perfume on the back seat, looking at the label, thinking about
hubby's dislike of the scent, and putting the cake on the floorboard, wrapped in a blanket (because it was some awesome cake and I didn't want it to
fall over on the way home.
Now that is TWO distinct memories of reading the label and noticing the colors of the box.
When I got home, hubby was the one to bring the perfume upstairs. After I took off my earrings, I went back to where he dropped the perfume off (the
bar in the kitchen) to put it up, and to my EXTREME surprise, it was my mom's Beautiful, NOT BH.
That was TWO distinct and clear, RECENT memories, that were completely WRONG. WTH!!!!
I realize memories are not perfect and even our perceptions are distorted, but this is beyond my norm. TOTALLY!
Not two days ago even my mother in law ( can you ask for a more un-biased source) was saying my mind was a steel trap.
Add to this, my mom only remembers me carrying the BH.
So, while I am sure, plenty of people have opinions about this, I want to know if anyone else has experienced this.
I know I'm crazy, but am I really THAT crazy?
