Never Did That Before

I was just about to get into the shower when I felt a sneeze coming on. "This is a first," I thought. "Don't think I've ever done this before, sneezed in the shower."

Do others notice things like this? The first time something happened? I was in the college cafeteria one weekend and accidentally lifted the handle for chocolate milk into my tea. "Never done that before," came into my mind. I generally eat with one hand or the other, but one day switched right during the meal; "first time for that," I thought. "Huh."

I don't take notes on stuff like that, but these "First Time When" moments do tend to stand out when they happen. It wasn’t the first time I played the operaQueen of Spades on the radio; that's what I did at that station. Realizing that I never had breakfast in the Arctic before this, well, I was on a trip and that was to be expected. But getting up at 3:00 a.m. to "take care of business" and finding the sun way up in the sky; yeah, that's a First Moment ... in the Arctic, of course.

Tripped the other day and landed on my bed. "First time for that," I said to myself. I wonder why I (we?) can remember that this has not happened before? It's never a planned activity, but something that just sort of happened and it dawned on me that I'd never done this.

I've been writing this all day. If it wasn't one thing, it was another. In, out; phone calls, people, meals, radio show. This is not a "never done this before" moment; just another "another busy day" time.

We remember "firsts" because they're out of the ordinary.

What's too bad is that we never know when it's the "last" of something that is ordinary.
There are so many "last time we..." that, when we finally have the realization, we no longer have the memory.
