Memory is funny, Rocket. Deb and I were talking about finding out things that happened during the periods of our divorces from earlier marriages, years later; we have no memories of those things, even though we remember adjacent events. I have distinct and vivid memories of events from the plane crash I was in, even 37 years later, yet I saw the remains of the plane and know some of those memories are impossible. Our brains fill in (or erase) events seemingly at random. And those are just the things we catch!
