It was probably sour grapes thinking but I wondered if not having a particularly good at remembering things brain, and coming up with decent life-managing strategies to cope with that, might put me in better stead than someone who has always had good recall, if it begins to fade. (Vs the more dour interpretation that unworkable forgetfulness is more like a linear race , and my starting line is way ahead of some other folks…)
