I have a crazy memory. My short term memory sucks, but when it comes to numbers I remember SO much. This post was sparked when I surprised myself by dialing a colleague's number by heart.
Note: I don't mean the short extensions of people I work with or numbers I recognize when they pop up on my caller I.D. at work (which sometimes omits names). This is a list of numbers I could dial (all 10 digits) off the top of my head with no extra information:
Family: Mom's cell; two land lines at mom's house; stepfather's cell; maternal grandma (don't trip, my paternal grandma changed her number last year after having the same number for 30+ years); Sam's cell, Josh's cell
Friends: thummyb, P (R's P), Nicol's mom's house (random, I know)
Colleagues: Two people I talk to way too much in NYC.
And that's it. Everyone else's number I can't remember. That's actually pretty sad given the brain's capacity to remember things, but I also know most of my credit card and bank account numbers by heart, so you all's phone numbers will have to stay stored safely with Verizon 'nem.
Question of the Day is who's number(s) do you remember by heart?
