Trying to remember

Dear Editor:My grandkids said, "Why do you repeat yourself so much Grandpa?" I said I have to repeat myself so much because you guys don't remember. They said "we remember." I said no you don't remember, because if you did remember, I wouldn't have to repeat myself so much. Kids, when they grow up, they will remember. They say when you get old, you forget a lot, but how would you know you forgot if you don't know what you forgot? Maybe you forgot what you forgot. When you were young, you just don't remember. Young people don't know what they don't know, because they don't know what they don't know yet. We older people know what we know, and we know what we don't know. I think. I really don't remember. - James E. Jones, Downey
