Poster MemoryMy 16 yr. old daughter's door has a poster that says "Everytime I finally get it all together, I forget where I put it!"
I do not know this line could be used by my 8 yr. old daughter [Jemjem]. She has memorized this since it is pasted in front of the door opposite our dining table. Everytime she eats, she gets the chance to read this and has committed it to memory without really trying.
Finally, she has used this line when her balikbayan cousin, a U.S. citizen, has asked her questions which she do not know how to answer fluently in English. When this 2-yr old girl asked her, "Where's my magic spring? I wanna use it!", etc.
Since she learnt only few English where she can readily answer without stammering, she just answered, "Everytime I finally get it all together, I forget where I put it!"
When all of us heard it, we laughed because we knew it's not from her original thoughts yet it rightly answered the query. :-)
