Notes On A Story

So, I read a story earlier from a guy who claimed to remember an attempted kidnapping from when he was around 9 years old.

He gave a lot of details in the story, all the way down to a full on conversation he allegedly had with the would-be kidnapper.

I’m frankly skeptical he could possibly remember that much about the situation, especially some 30 years later and most especially conversation-wise.

Given that people have hundreds if not thousands of conversations in their lives over the years, and knowing the mind isn’t like a flawless verbatim video recorder in regards to memory, my skepticism is reasonably warranted.

Anyway, the story is at the very least a good cautionary tale, regardless how many of the details are accurate in his retelling.
