i still read it about once a year, and it still excites me,
every time anew!

i can recognise almost any song i ever heard,
from the first second or two, and i would most probably remember
most of the lyrics correctly, even if the last time i heard it was about 17 years ago.
it takes up a ton of space in the hard drive i call a brain,
but it's a pretty fun talent to have.
especially on long drives when we don't have any cd's and the radio is on
