Sense and Sensitivity | Jogging memories – Eureka Times-Standard

Dear Harriette: I have been watching a lot of movies and miniseries recently, mainly because it gives me time together with my daughter. It started during quarantine and has continued. We talk a lot about the shows and all kinds of other things as we’re watching, which is nice. My problem is that we have looked at so many that I find it hard to remember one show from the next. This is frustrating for my daughter, who will ask me if I remember something, and often I get the shows confused. How can I keep it all together so that our lovely way of connecting doesn’t become a source of upset? — Jog My Memory

Dear Jog My Memory: You may want to consider jotting down a few key notes about the things you watch. You can record the title of the film or series, the main actors’ actual names and names in the show, the general plotline and perhaps how it made you feel. Also, write down when you watched it.

This memory exercise is something you can use for other things, as well. As you go about your day, when something of note occurs, record it. Take a minute to write down the particulars of the moment, including where and when it happened. You will thank yourself later.

Dear Under Fire: It is thoughtful of you to want to provide moral support to this woman at such a challenging time. Why not start by sending her a text, if you have her phone number? Tell her that you are thinking of her and want her to know that you are around if she needs to talk. If she responds, invite her to join you for coffee or drinks sometime soon. If she does not, reach out again in a week or so and extend an invitation to get together. If she agrees to see you, be a good listener, not an interrogator. If your intention is to have this woman’s back, let her share what she feels comfortable discussing, and keep her thoughts to yourself.

Should you feel the need to let her know your feelings about the controversy, ask her if she …….

Last Thursday (Jan. 26), Ben from California competed in the bonus round of the popular game show. He was guessing in the “Fun and Games” category and didn’t get the correct answer, which was, “taking a jog.”

Ben guessed, “Taunt a chuck guy,” and continued to change the second-to-last word. He went on to list, “chance guy… wacky guy…” none of which were the correct answer.
