What’s your first memory?
This topic recently came up in a Look Smart Trivia conversation and it made me wonder what people can first remember and what the average age is of a first memory.
For me, it is being in the hospital recovering from spinal meningitis at age 2 1/2. I remember watching the nurse walk around the corner carrying an open tote filled with shots as she made her rounds giving out meds to patients. I remember the feeling of dread from seeing her turn that corner headed towards my room because I knew the daily barrage of shots was inevitable and that there was no escape.
So what’s yours? Please share and include how old you were at the time. Thanks and have a wonderful day!
