Do you remember the first phone numbers you memorized? Back in 1979, I memorized my home phone number, and because it was only one digit off, I memorized our upstairs neighbor’s as well. After that, I memorized my grandmother’s phone number. I still use it on occasion, because my aunt still lives in that house, and the number hasn’t been changed.
Even though we moved in 1981, I still remember that first phone number. Probably because it was a kindergarten requirement. I don’t remember any of the phone numbers I had through college, or as I moved around after college, but that number I knew for 2 years when I was five? Engraved forever in my long-term memory.
What phone numbers do you remember and why? And, how was your Monday?
