Years ago I was collecting and typing my bits and scraps of journals/diaries. As I typed, I came across a story that I remembered well -- just not the way it was written on the page! The original had to be the correct version, as I wrote it at the time it happened. That's when I learned just how unreliable memory is. (And now I can't even remember what that story was!
Wow - wonderful insight into the workings of our minds. I know of cases where eyewitnesses consistently misidentify innocent defendants. It really makes us need to question recalled events from others - and ourselves!
