Default Re: Terrible feeling of déjà vu

I had something like that lately when I wanted to send a photo (via email) to a friend, that another friend had emailed to me 'a couple of months back' - or so I thought. I couldn't find it, and eventually contacted friend_2 who re-sent with the comment that they last sent it in September...2017.

I'm starting to get in first with 'I have a terrible memory' when talking to folks, so a) if they tell me things and I forget, they've been warned and b) if I start to
bore them with a re-cycled anecdote, they can head me off without having to listen (again) politely

(If you have deja-vu over this post of mine, let's say it's me and I posted this info recently but have forgotten!!)
