How about Hard Rock?

The Hard Rock… Casino? *confused* What for?.

You said you always wanted to go.
j chat icon
No I didn’t. I never said I wanted to go to the Hard Rock.
dd chat icon
You did! You said you wanted to go to the casino.

Casino?! That wasn’t me. Maybe you’re thinking of a conversation with some other woman. *smile*

I wouldn’t have said that — I’m not into gambling.

Exactly! That’s why I remember it — because it was an odd thing for you to say.

Your memory is off. I never said I want to go to a casino.
dd chat icon
You did.

Hold on a minute. Not even an hour ago, I mentioned something from a conversation we had three years ago — a tiny, insignificant detail (from three years ago!) — because I have a spectacular memory.

You don’t — you forget stuff we talk about all the time.

It’s okay… you don’t need to have a good memory because I do. We balance each other out that way — I make up for your forgetfulness by remembering everything. *smile*
dd chat icon
Everything? *laugh* Your memory isn’t perfect.
j chat icon
You’re right. It’s not perfect… it’s better than perfect.
dd chat icon
*confused*..
j chat icon
I remember things in our relationship that didn’t even happen…

……..……..
