What do you make of this?

Probably nothing but I would like to know what you ladies think...:)

For some reason I can remember everyone's birthday I may not give them a call or send gifts (that would be so expensive on me) but if I could I would. But the scary thing about it is I can remember birthdays way back when I was in Junior high and here I am in my mid 40's. I don't know why but that is weird for me and when I do tell people their birthdays they trip out like wow how do you know??? I don't know what to say but I don't know why :)
Would you find me strange or pretty neat? I just wish I was like that way back in school, I made ok grades but to remember b/days why not school. Thanks Ladies

  • Not weird, just different. Some people have a memory for things like that. My hubby can remember the make and model of every car he has ever owned and the VIN number for most of them, but he can't tell me what we did yesterday half the time.

  • I think it's kinda cool! I can remember phone numbers and I know my old license number from when I lived in Jersey over 6 years ago and THAT number is 16 digits long!

  • THat's cool! I have a mental block on birthdays! LOL! I don't know why. I always get them wrong. My best friend is ALWAYS mad because I think her birthday is March 11 and it's really the 6th!

    My husband has a student that is like this too. He knows all the birthdays in school. It's a nice little thing to have in your mental arsenal!

  • I have a numerical memory as well. I can remember my highschool friends birthdays and I am good with phone numbers too.

  • I think it is a gift. I have a friend who is now in her 70's and she can remember birth dates and ages like no one I've ever seen.

  • Good long term memory. It will be weird when you are an old lady who can't find her underwear much less the bathroom, but you can tell someone when his/her birthday is. That will be weird.
