Charlize: You won’t forget that we’re going over to the Wong’s for dinner tomorrow night, will you?
Pete: It’s etched in my brain. I won’t forget.
Charlize: It slipped your mind last week that we were meeting Donna at the movies, remember?
Pete: I was preoccupied last week, but I won’t forget about tomorrow night.
Charlize: I’m reminding you because the week before that, you forgot to cash that check at the bank. Remember that?
Pete: I didn’t forget. I was just a little wrapped up in work that week. I’m not usually absentminded, you know.
Charlize: Right. Do you want me to send you an email tomorrow morning to jog your memory?
Pete: That won’t be necessary. I have the day, time, and even their address committed to memory. Do you want to test me?
Charlize: No, I don’t, but I just want to make sure we don’t have a repeat of what happened last month. You were supposed to meet me at the Donnelly’s at 8:00 and you never showed up. Remember that?
Pete: No, I don’t. I have amnesia. I won’t remember any other incident you want to throw in my face. I thought last week you said you would stop giving me a hard time about my bad memory. Remember that?
Charlize: Uh, no, I don’t.
Pete: I guess I’m not the only one who’s scatterbrained!
