SoCS – what’s mem mean to you?

And the “mem”s have it.

membership – What a struggle this can be.  Do we want to become members?  Is it worth the money?  Is it elitist?  Should I even care?

remember – I can’t recall (yes, I see the irony) if this was a problem when I was younger, but remembering things has become a real problem.  Faces and names can be embarrassing; forgetting why I walked into a room is downright annoying.

dismember – Not a fan of the gore genre.  If it involves chopping bodies into small parts, I’m out.  Well, except for Scandal.  That show got a little graphic for a while but I hung in there.

homemade – Mom’s banana bread.  Bee’s fudge.  Aunt Ollie’s pound cake.  Mmmm…

meme – Did everybody know how to pronounce this but me?  I finally had to come right out and ask a friend, “Look, is it ‘mé-mé’ or ‘meem’?”  Sad.

memo – Why don’t we ever see the truly important stuff in a memo?  “Effective immediately, there is an office ban on overpowering perfume, cologne, or B.O.  Decontamination facilities will be utilized if necessary.”  “Attention: This microwave is for everyone’s use.  Do not heat your stinky tuna fish or gross greens as the odor will seep into other people’s food for hours.”

memorize – Relevant to ‘remember’.  I was never more terrified than when confronted by a long list of data to memorize.  States, capitals, continents, oceans, presidents, wars…it is a memory-impaired person’s nightmare.

memorable – I love how many different things can make a person memorable.  Their hair, eyes, attitude, soul, kindness, courage, or dedication – some people stick long after they’ve left a room.

memoir – Do you suppose, if I wrote a memoir in my eighties, that a review might call it scandalous?  I sometimes wonder…

  1. Hah, your format and mine are a bit similar today 🙂
    I liked memo. I don’t wear perfume to work. I never have, although I wore scented lotions a lot when I worked at the hardware store. I work in an office. To me, perfume and office don’t go together. My husband works in an office and he wears cologne every day. I hope his colleagues don’t hate him. Honestly, I hope they don’t often get close enough to smell him! lol
    I like Scandal, too, although, I’ve become a store and binge one with that. Too many cliffhangers.
