So I’ve got a new theory: that your first memory is a total Rorschach test for you as a person.
It’s worked 100% so far. Everyone I’ve asked has remembered something that’s exactly what you’d pin on them.
The gay remembered rearranging the furniture in his room.
The biker chick remembered hurting herself and getting fixed up.
The thinker remembered realizing she could hear her own thoughts.
The entrepreneur remembered doing what her family thought she couldn’t.
The mama remembered standing up to a bully.
The musician remembered his mother surprising him with a new song.
Mine is sitting on my father’s shoulders in a dim, green hospital hallway looking down into the nursery window at my new baby brother.
Make of that what you will, but first tell me yours.
