My brain has dumb priorities

September 18th, 2006 · 2 Comments

On the plane last week I was asked what country Mt. Everest is in and I couldn’t remember. “Africa?” I said questioningly, knowing that Africa is a continent, not a country; no, that’s Mt. Kilimanjaro, said the cute dad with whom I was having this conversation. “I’m mortified that I can’t remember — China pops into my head but honestly — that’s one of those things I have to look up when I need it,” I told him.

But last night I was able to sing from memory:

Holding you
Is a feeling I never outgrew
And though each and every part of me has tried
Only you can fill that space inside
And there’s no sense pretending
My heart
It’s not mending
Just when I thought I was over you
Just when I thought I could stand on my own
Oh baby
Those mem’ries come crashing through
And I can’t go on without

I eventually remembered that Mt. Everest is in Nepal. Or wait, Tibet. Oh dear. So I looked it up and found out it’s in both.

    Air Supply – some memories will never go away.

    Kinda like Toto’s Africa – which is whay *I* think of whenever I hear someone say Mt. Kilamanjaro. ;)
