26 Nov Be sure to do this the next time your Week 2 rolls around
Yesterday, when I was in the height of my Week 2, Douglas asked me if I remembered the name of a little dive bar someone took us to once about six years ago.
“Yup, the Oar House.”
Later that day, we needed a receipt to return an ill-fitting dog harness we’d bought a few weeks ago. He looked high and low for it, then asked if I knew where it was. I gave it a sec, then made a beeline to a shoebox on the steps of my office.
“Yup, got it.”
My memory was so sharp, I was pretty sure I could give him all the answers to my high school SAT exam, sing all the lyrics to Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start the Fire” and name all 428 Duggar kids upon request.
My point here?
If you’ve misplaced an item, forgotten a factoid or need to plumb the depths of your memory for some other dusty nugget of knowledge, make a point to do it during your Week 2 (which starts 8 days from the onset of menstruation–earlier if you have a cycle that’s shorter than 28 days).
High estrogen and testosterone are pushing your memory into superpowers territory, surprising everyone around you–and yourself–with all the many details you can recall!
