|Forget me not|
-Although I’m here now, I always was, and hope to be, as long as my memory functions.
-What are you talking about?
-Well, I’m reading and writing a lot, you know that…
-Right! I always wondered where you get all these great ideas from.
-Thanks! You say this because you are my friend…
-Not at all! You know me better than that! They’re so…so original, to say the least!
-So, where do you think are they coming from?
-They’re outside the box for sure! It could be a dialog between your left and right brain.
-Ha! Come to think of it, you might be right…
-What do you want me to say? You’re super-talented and basta!
-No, no…talent helps, but the rest, the essence?
-That too, but…
-Don’t tell me!
-How do you figure?
-Remember when we bumped into each other? What did you tell me?
-That you looked familiar…
-So, is this the answer?
-Not really and it doesn’t happen often, but it does happen...
-With the girls, too?
-In a matter of speech because there are also other species, you know…
-At least, you are probing unlike others…
-I do, don’t I? Hm!
-True… and don’t think that the thought didn’t cross my mind!
-True! For example… where do you reside?
-But you know that! You want the short or the long version?
-The full one, please!
-OK, here it is: in the heart of people who remember my name…
-See? You’re not going to be forgotten either!
-Maybe… one never knows!
-See what I mean?
