I read in the newspaper the other day that Neil Diamond revealed after all these years that it was President John Kennedy’s daughter who had inspired him to write his song “Sweet Caroline”. I heard it on the radio this morning and recalled the story. In my musings, I then found myself trying to recall the daughter’s name – Mary?, Betty?.
I put it down to sleep deprivation – working late last night to prepare a teaching presentation -, overall stress [don’t ask!], and possibly age.
Now, what do they call that condition where you can’t find the name of something?
