I can’t say I particularly like sponges. For reasons irrelevant this minute.

However, the brain, my brain, apart from looking like a sponge, is a sponge. Absorbent. Very. Till it drips. Where the sponge has one over the brain is that you can wring it – unlike your brain.

Alternatively I wish I could hoover my brain’s recesses. Or order everything stored up there alphabetically, to locate when needed.




  1. You and I both. I think my brain is currently resembling an old kitchen sponge that needs replacing. I can’t remember where I put anything! 🙂

    • Bella, hi. It’s not that I can’t remember anything. I suffer from information overload (hence the dripping). And I most certainly don’t want a NEW sponge. There is only so much a woman of my shoe size (average) can take before combusting.

  2. Mine is at full capacity. I keep saying if anything else goes in, something has to go out. What is aggravating is that the stuff that goes is what I probably need, and the stuff that stays is embarrassing to admit. Geez!

    • Renee, know what you mean. It happens every time I get rid of, say, a book. You can bet your bottom Pound Sterling that the very next day I’ll need to look up whatever that author said. Even if it was forgettable.

  3. Why is it that it’s the things you’d like to forget that you so often don’t?

  4. I’ve given up trying to retrieve all that I know must be in my brain somewhere. Just knowing it’s in there is comforting. Someday it may come oozing out–probably at the most inappropriate time. I hope I’m still able to write a story about it!

  5. I’m with Lorna on this one. I love to learn new things always. The problem isn’t in the learning, but the retrieval mechanism.
